Lehigh Valley IronPigs unveil new Friday night jerseys
These jerseys will be replacing the black “Molten” jerseys that previously were worn on Friday nights. This also is the first jersey unveiling since 2018, when the IronPigs introduced their maroon Sunday uniforms.
“These uniforms represent what we as an organization think of our fans the ‘gold standard’ in Minor League Baseball,” IronPigs President/General Manager Kurt Landes said in a statement. “Our team will wear these uniforms every Friday home game knowing that they have the best fans in Minor League Baseball behind them. Symbolically, these Gold Standard uniforms will be the epitome of what being an IronPigs fan is all about.”
The “Gold Standard” initiative was brought to life when the IronPigs were awarded the Larry MacPhail Award in October. The annual award acknowledges the top marketing and promotional Minor League Baseball team.

In addition to winning the industry’s most coveted award, the IronPigs have won more Golden Bobbleheads (5) than any other team in baseball. Golden Bobble awards are given to the year’s top promotions and events within Minor League Baseball. The “Gold Standard” uniforms are a direct tribute to IronPigs fans whose support has allowed for the organizations’ numerous successes since the franchise’s inception in 2008.
The uniforms will feature a gold base with “IronPigs” across the chest in metallic gold with black trim. A black stripe will be at the base of each sleeve with a “Gold Standard” patch, featuring five gold stars, on the left sleeve. The five stars represent the top rating of the IronPigs and their fans. The team will also be wearing all gold caps with a gold liquid chrome IronPigs logo on the front with five stars located on the side.
