2016 IronPigs Season Recap

The 2016 season was the most successful campaign in the nine-year history of the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. The Pigs finished with an 85-58 record -- their best mark all-time, the second-best in Triple-A and the 12th best in full-season Minor League Baseball. In fact, their franchise-record 85 wins was the highest total by a Phillies' Triple-A affiliate since 2002, when the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Red Barons went 91-53. The Pigs finished in second place in the North Division and won the Wild Card, earning the franchise's first trip to the International League postseason since 2011 and its second playoff berth all-time.
