Yankees be goneThey really don't like the Yankees in New England:
The Lowell Spinners (short season; NY-Penn League) announced the continuation of a popular program: eliminating the New York Yankees in youth baseball programs throughout New England.
I can't believe that this isn't being done in reverse to the Red Sox someplace else.

The Spinners have lots of great promotions (e.g. Jack Kerouac bobblehead night, DiceK Fuzzy dice) and my brothers loves taking his little boys to the games.
As for the anti-NY promotion, there may not be many NY locales with similar promos but I suspect that other regional rivals have similar fun. For example, No Gators in Georgia, Maize and Blue being banned in Ohio, I think that may actually exist, and of course no River Plate allowed in the Boca region of Buenos Aires (futbol rivalry a good friend of mine from Argentina suffers from).

But all those mini-Jeters are soooo clutch. . .it’s just not the same without those interlocking NY caps. . .

Why can’t these youth teams stick with Chico’s Bail Bonds?

One of the funnier concepts I read about lately. I wish them luck in “eliminating” the Yankees…
