One lucky IronPigs fan will receive funeral tonight


The night has finally arrived.

Some fan will be plucked from the stands at Coca-Cola Park during a beautiful evening in Allentown and reminded of their inevitable mortality.

The IronPigs, famous for innovating the art of giving away free stuff at baseball games, are attempting to top all previous giveaways with a free funeral.

It's "Celebration of Life" night, and the 'Pigs asked fans to submit essays desrcibing the funeral they've always wanted. The best entry will receive a free funeral (upon naturally passing away some time in the future, of course).

For a less sepulchral night at the 'ol ballpark, maybe come out for the next giveaway on August 26.

It's a magnet.
