The leading Minor League Baseball team in the nation has teamed up with the national leader in marching band and drum corps to create YEA!'s Designated Hitters, the official IronPigs Drumline, to entertain fans and support the team for the 2013 season.

This 15-member drumline will be a featured act at 15 home games throughout the season. The Designated Hitters will welcome crowds in the parking lot at Coca-Cola Park before games, participate in player introductions and perform Drum Battles atop the dugouts after select innings later this season. 

The IronPigs and YEA! are providing talented drummers from the Lehigh Valley region to audition and become members of the drumline's inaugural season at an open audition which will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 10 at South Mountain Middle School in Allentown.

Potential members of the Designated Hitters should be between the ages of 16 and 25, have 3 to 5 years of experience and be available for weekly rehearsals and performances. The 15 drummers selected will be paid a small stipend for each performance.

Drummers will be evaluated on their drumming skills and showmanship during the 3-minute audition. YEA!'s Designated Hitters will play exclusively with Yamaha drums, Zildjian cymbals, Remo drumheads and Vic Firth drumsticks and mallets.
