Urinal Gaming System Planned For Minor League Ballpark

ALLENTOWN, Pa. (March 26, 2013)--The Philadelphia Phillies' top minor league affiliate is set to introduce what it calls a urinal gaming system at its ballpark in Allentown, Pa.

The Lehigh Valley IronPigs selected a British company to install the system in men's restrooms at Coca-Cola Park.

It consists of a video display mounted above each urinal.

When a fan approaches, the video console will sense his presence and switch into gaming mode.

The fan then aims left or right to control the play on the screen.

The team said Tuesday that Coca-Cola Park will be the first sports venue in the world to feature the gaming system and says it will be ready by opening day next week.

IronPigs General Manager Kurt Landes said the games are "sure to make a huge splash."
