The Philadelphia Phillies’ top minor affiliated league is scheduled to launch what it calls a “Urinal Gaming System” in their stadium in Allentown, Pennsylvania.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs hired a British company to install the gaming system in the men’s bathroom of the Coca-Cola Park.
It consists of a video screen mounted above each urinal. When approached by a fan, the video console will feel the presence and change into the game mode. The man will then aim to the left or right to control the game on the screen.
The team announced Tuesday that Coca-Cola Park will be the first sports arena in the world that will have the game system. It will you be ready for opening day next week.
“In the past, I was reluctant to go to the men’s bathroom at ballparks because there is just nothing to do there and I always got the feeling that someone is checking me out. Now, I will feel better knowing that the guys are busy playing video games at the urinal,” an excited IronPigs fan told YourJewishNews.com.
IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes said he did not want to miss a golden opportunity to entertain the fans. He said that the games are sure to make a huge splash.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
