Lowell Spinners Play 'Politically Correct' Game

LOWELL The Lowell Spinners took baseball promotions to a whole new level Tuesday night.

The Spinners and the Brooklyn Cyclones played what may be the first ever politically correct baseball game.

That meant renaming some positions - the first, second and third basemen became "base persons," the batboy was the "bat person" for the night and the shortstop turned into the "vertically challenged stop."

"It was pretty awkward at first, I asked my buddy next to me, I was like what did he just say?" said Spinners catcher Brett Lewis.

Errors were not announced to the crowd - so they didn't offend the players who committed them.

The changes didn't help the Spinners though. Brooklyn won, 9-5.

I think that maybe I should have posted this under laughter. I think they slammed a home run against the pc crowd.
