Kids today are wicked soft. There’s quite a bit of fun buried in that comment. Here’s why:
The Lowell Spinners (short season; NY-Penn League) are bringing back the Yankees Elimination Promotion for a fifth year, as the Red Sox affiliate works to eliminate New York Yankees teams from youth baseball programs throughout New England.
“The Yankees Elimination Promotion was originally built as a fun promotion in response to parent’s stories of children losing interest in the game after facing taunts simply for playing in a Yankees uniform,” said Spinners Vice President and General Manager Tim Bawmann. “Five years later teams are still eliminating the Yankees and the joy on the faces of the newly minted Spinners players on the field at LeLacheur Park reminds us why we love this game.”
Only in New England is this an issue. Booo-hooo.
So much teaching kids that life’s not fair, people are mean and that the Yankees suck. Go Spinners.
