They'll be the "Jawn."

From the release, with a truly amazing quote:

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are paying tribute to Philadelphia in a special way for one night only on Sunday, July 7 when they take the field against the Pawtucket Red Sox.  The IronPigs will be changing their name to "Jawn", a salute to Philadelphian's roots for calling a person, place or thing – a Jawn.

"Each year, we try to come up with new and exciting jawns for our fans," said IronPigs President and General Manager Kurt Landes. "We've had cheesesteak jawns, Philly Special jawns, bacon jawns and more. We think this jawn is one of our best jawns yet. We can't wait to see the Pigs wear their Jawn jawns on July 7!"

Amazing. Either you think this is great or awful. And if you find yourself in the former category, you can pick up a sweet "jawn" hat or t-shirt at
