TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — The New York Yankees’ minor league baseball team in New Jersey is being renamed for the state’s favorite processed meat.

The Trenton Thunder will rebrand the AA affiliate the Trenton Pork Roll on Friday nights, beginning May 18.

Players will wear special uniforms featuring the pork-based product, that’s also known as Taylor ham.

Concessions will sell pork roll sandwiches and pork roll-themed merchandise will be for sale.

Thunder General Manager Jeff Hurley says re-branding as the Trenton Pork Roll on Friday nights is the “perfect way to celebrate a Garden State favorite.”
