The Lowell Spinners is a Boston Red Sox minor league affiliate and a part of the New York – Penn. League since 1966. A large number of future stars begin their careers with this franchise at LeLacheur Park in Lowell, MA. 68 Lowell Spinners players have made it to Boston. You can even catch a few players that have already gone pro as the Lowell Spinners house many rehabbing players as well. This stadium, located right near UMASS Lowell seats 4,797 people with a standing capacity of 5,030. Enjoy a game with a beautiful view as it overlooks both the Merrimack River and the arches of the Aiken Street Bridge.
Enjoy the thrill of a highly skilled baseball team without burning a hole in your wallet. We all know Sox games can get expensive, so why not try out a different action packed game with your family this summer? You definitely won’t be alone. The home games have been sold out every year and there is always a long waitlist for season tickets. Spinners games are nothing short of a thrill. The players that have passed through this team have certainly done well for themselves with some of the big names including Youkilis, Papelbon, and Ellsbury, to name a few. You can find the Lowell Spinners Schedule as well as information for tickets, events, and much more on their website, www.milb.com.
Another thing to note is that the Lowell Spinners hold a number of events outside of baseball games. For example, check out the City of Lowell Fireworks for free at the stadium on July 3rd or the Idiots Revisited book signing by Ian Browne, Red Sox columnist also on July 3rd. The Lowell Spinners have even come up with some creative themed game nights including $1 Weenie Wednesday, Game Show Night, and Daddy/Daughter Princess Night. Don’t forget, kids eat for free on Mondays!
There is a lot of community service in the history of the Lowell Spinners. They are extremely involved in their community and support many causes in the area including the Lowell General Hospital Cancer Walk, the Boys and Girls Club, the Special Olympics, as well as Cystic Fibrosis/Cerebral Palsy Research. In addition to these causes they support the Joann Weber Charitable Fund, which was founded by a Spinners owner Drew Weber in 2007 in memory of his wife who passed away after a 3-year battle with pancreatic cancer.
With all of this in mind, it is totally worth it to check out a Lowell Spinners Game this summer.
