Well, good for the LeHigh Valley IronPigs. It is not often that minor league baseball teams get national attention, but here we are. The LeHigh team out of Allentown, Pennsylvania has apparently installed a “urinal gaming system” in their park and it has been receivin national intention. That’s probabably because it is the first of its kind.
This is sure to make the bathroom breaks in Allentown to be just as entertaining as the game. Is it a cheap ploy? Well, no it was probably an expensive one acutally.
“These games are sure to make a huge splash,” IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes said. “Our fans are always looking for the next big thing and these ‘X-Stream games’ are another example of our commitment to providing an unparalleled entertainment experience in all aspects of Coca-Cola Park, including our restrooms.”
The video console apparently has a motion sensor that can tell when a fan is at the urinal stall. It will debut next week and I’ve got to say, the next time I go back to Virginia I might see if I can catch a major league game in Allentown on my way back and try this out. I let everyone know my urinal game score if do go.
Something tells me that a toilet bowl gaming system is not on its way though.
