Lowell Spinners vs. Staten Island Yankees 7/3/09
Yesterday afternoon me and a few of my pals made a trip to LeLacheur Park in Lowell to see the Lowell Spinners, the single A affiliate of the Red Sox play against the Staten Island Yankees, the single A affiliate of the Yankees. When we got their I was thinking, “Yes. I finally got tickets to a Red Sox-Yankees game. Too bad it’s only single A. But hey it’s a start. When we got their, we made sure we claimed our free Ed LeLacheur bobbleheads that they were giving out in front of the main gate. We were sooooo pumped to get it… it was our dreams coming true… yeah right, it was a cheap givaway.
So we strolled on into the park and found our seats and watched batting practice. We still had an hour and a half left until the first pitch so we strolled around outside of the park and back and forth a few times just mozying around waiting and waiting and waiting. Eventually we got some fried dough and got back to our seats with about fifteen minutes to go until the game started. It was a great game. The Spinners won 4-2. The weather wasn’t all tha bad like it was supposed to be but the game went on without any delays. It only rained for about fifteen minutes at the most and it wasn’t all that bad.
I did some research before the game to see which players were having good seasons and which guys I thought might have a chance to make it to the big leagues and be a star. I found this one guy named Derrik Gibson who is the shortstop for the Spinners. He has had a good past two seasons so I got an autograph from him after they were done warming up. I went back to my seat and watched the rest of the game. One of my pals Cody went onto the field and did the chicken dance along with my brother. He was also showed his musical talent during the seventh inning stretch. I got some cool videos of the side shows from the game. There was a frisbee dog and a sumo wrestling fight. It was a great time. I took a lot of pictures so here they are for you guys. I hope you enjoy them.

Unfortunatley I cannot figure out how to get my videos on here because it is saying they are too big. Oh well. I can promise you they were pretty funny.
