Usually it’s Minor League Baseball that comes up with awesome midweek promotions to get people to come to the ballpark, but the North Carolina Tar Heels on Tuesday did exactly what every team in the country should do.

Pretty good deal to get some free bacon and a souvenir helmet to go with it.

UNC also got the win, defeating the Campbell Camels by a score of 8-3. So overall, Bacon Night at the Bosh was a success on every level.
