ALLENTOWN, Pa. - The Philadelphia Phillies' top minor league club has a new attraction -- in the restrooms.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs are rolling out a "urinal gaming system."
There's a video monitor mounted above each urinal. When a fan answers a call of nature the system switches into game mode.
The guy aims left or right to control the play on the screen. When he's done, the player gets a score and can view his position on the leader board, which will be displayed in real-time across various videoboard displays within the ballpark.
The team says theirs will be the first sports venue in the world to feature the British-made system.
"These games are sure to make a huge splash," IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes said in a news release. "Our fans are always looking for the next big thing and these 'X-Stream games' are another example of our commitment to providing an unparalleled entertainment experience in all aspects of Coca-Cola Park, including our restrooms."
