Minor League Team to ‘Celebrate Life’ by Offering Fans Free Funeral in Ballpark Giveaway

Iron PigsNow, this is something that you don’t see everyday.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are taking the ballpark giveaway game to another level. The Phillies Triple-A affiliate is offering up a free funeral this summer to one “lucky” fan who submits an essay about what their “dream funeral” would include.

The fan who wins is promised a free funeral or memorial service by Reichel Funeral Home, which is the business behind the “Celebration of Life” night at Coca-Cola Park.

“The best fans in Minor League Baseball deserve the opportunity to win a once-in-a-lifetime giveaway,” IronPigs general manager Kurt Landes said in a statement. “Unquestionably, this is the most highly-coveted ‘out-of-the-box’ promotion in IronPigs history.”

The prize package includes a casket, professional services of a funeral director and staff, body removal, embalming or cremation, hearse and facility for funeral services, wake or viewing.
