There is a lot of community service in the history of the Lowell Spinners. The team used to use a concept called “Spinners Charities” and focus efforts on building awareness for one charity each summer. From 2002-2007 they partnered with Kids in Disability Sports, the Cystinosis Research Network, the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America, Challenge Unlimited at Ironstone Farm and the Winter Warmth Project. In 2008 they began to partner directly with the Joann Weber Charitable Fund, after the team’s late owner Joann Weber who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2007.
The Lowell Spinners have been a part of summer baseball history for over 20 years. They have become a part of the DNA of the Greater Merrimack Valley, ever since they came to Lowell in 1996. Visiting a game is a great way to make family memories that will last a lifetime. Plus with so many different activities and events for the kids during their games, your family will never complain about being bored!
