I 'm crazy about bacon, but I'm not sure about a baseball marketing campaign that asks us to "smell the change" and "scratch and sniff" some baseball gear. Dudes that play baseball are usually the first to affectionately refer to themselves as "dirtballs," because they're always jamming clay and pine tar and other goop on their ball caps and stuff. I'd prefer to keep my bacon away from the ball field.

I predict a rasher of complaints about this.

And, scratch and sniff is not new in baseball.

Or any locker room for that matter...

Something tells me that there is a connection here

What a great marketing scheme to sell gear. Who doesn't want a cap or shirt with bacon on it, mmmhhhhh.

I refuse to accept that iron pigs have regular bacon inside of them.  Makes no sense at all.

Meanwhile, in Lancaster, PA, the Barnstormers are wondering how to put scrapple on a hat.

Snarkies gonna snark.

Scrapple is awesome. Fried crispy on the edges with two eggs over medium.

We should do an 11W poll: Which is tastier - scrapple or corned beef hash?

I love my bacon..... But I'm not a fan of the smell in the house a few hours later......   

I would have just stopped with the Hat.

I believe the SEC players put their pants on one leg at a time like we do.
