Minor League Baseball Team Giving Away $10,000 Funeral in Outrageous Promotion


A new minor league baseball promotion may very well take your breath away.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are giving away a funeral in a package estimated to be worth $10,000 during the team’s ‘Celebration of Life’ night on August 20 against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

So, what will the lucky eventually-going-to-be-deceased fan win? In addition to a coffin, he or she will receive complimentary services from the Reichel Funeral Home director and staff; embalming or cremation; use of the home for a viewing, funeral and memorial service; and a car to bring the remains to the cemetery.

As if that’s not enticing enough, the winner will receive a free headstone and flowers.

Entrants could very well die trying to win, since anyone who wants the package must submit an essay of no more than 200 words describing their “ideal funeral and why they feel they will, eventually, be deserving of the free funeral.”

You must submit the essay to by July 31 and all entrants must be in attendance at the game in order to claim the macabre prize.
