Two brand-new seating areas, the "Hot Corner" and the "Bacon Strip" have been added to Coca-Cola Park, offering IronPigs fans the most unique and distinctive seating and hospitality areas in all of Minor League Baseball.
The Hot Corner, named for its remarkably close proximity to third base, is located directly below the PPL Picnic Patio and provides a one-of-a-kind environment on the Field Level. The Bacon Strip, providing a similar look and feel to the famed "Green Monster" seats at Fenway Park, is a bi-level seating area located along the right field wall that is expected to be among the most desired seating inventory at Coca-Cola Park.
Both areas are available for groups of 20 or more beginning on Wednesday, December 12 at 10 a.m. by calling (610) 841-PIGS (7447) or by visiting Coca-Cola Park during normal business hours. Individual ticket sales commence once single-game tickets go on sale to the general public during the club's annual National Pig Day celebration at Coca-Cola Park on Saturday, March 2, 2013.
"We are constantly seeking out new ways to provide innovative and unique experience for our fans," remarked IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes. "These two new locales are just another example of our club's continued commitment to offer affordable, family entertainment to the Lehigh Valley!"
The Hot Corner features 48 swivel-style seats across two rows directly in front of the PPL Picnic Patio and includes great amenities such as in-seat food and beverage service as well as drink rail counters, allowing for a more comfortable viewing and dining experience. Hot Corner tickets are $20 per person.
The bi-level Bacon Strip beyond right field's "home run alley" includes 75 bar stool seats in the first row and an additional 52 stadium seats on the second level. Both rows of seating include the added comfort of drink rail counters for food and beverages. Bacon Strip tickets are $10 per person.
This is the second significant reinvestment project in as many years at Coca-Cola Park, following the debut of the popular Red Robin Tiki Terrace & Oasis in 2012.
Coca-Cola Park's other award-winning hospitality areas, including the PPL Picnic Patio, BSI Dugout Suites, PenTeleData Party Porches and the IronPigs' Team Suite, are currently available to the general public by calling (610) 841-PIGS (7447).
Coca-Cola Park, the most visited venue in Minor League Baseball for each of the last three seasons, will serve as the host venue for the 2013 Gildan Triple-A National Championship Game on Tuesday, September 17, 2013. To purchase or renew a ticket plan for the 2013 season and secure 2013 Gildan National Championship Game tickets, please call (610) 841-PIGS (7447) or visit the Coca-Cola Park during normal business hours.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are dedicated to providing family-friendly entertainment and are the only Minor League team to offer bubbles to fans entering the AT&T Plaza and balloons for all children exiting Coca-Cola Park.
