Minor League Baseball Team Gives Away Funeral

Posted: Updated:

Wild and wacky promotions are a way of life in the world of baseball. Especially minor league baseball with racing mascots, bobble heads, and even caps are great ways to get fans to games...but one minor league team in Pennsylvania was thinking out of the box...by offering someone an eternal resting place.

The Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs gave away a funeral valued at close to $10,000.

The funeral giveaway at the ballpark includes a headstone, casket, flowers and a memorial service.
