It was a thriller in Allentown Thursday night, and we’re not talking about the Lehigh Valley IronPigs’ game against the Pawtucket Red Sox.

However, we are talking about the IronPigs’ Michael Jackson-themed jerseys.

The IronPigs wore red-and-black alternate jerseys Thursday night, which were in the design of the King of Pop’s leather outfit from the legendary Thriller video from 1982.

The Phillies' Triple-A affiliate didn’t go all the way and wear actual leather on the field (probably for the better), but did wear the design of the jacket Jackson donned during the iconic video.

Unfortunately, they did not do the famous dance routine before the game.
