Spinners lead minor league promotion list

ESPN Travel came out with its top picks for minor league baseball summer stunts for the coming months. Leading the list is an event that will occur on July 5, 2011 along the banks of the Merrimack River in lovely Lowell during a Spinners game when David Smith Jr fires himself from a cannon and attempts to clear the right field wall. Smith supposedly performs this feat nearly 100 times per year, so presumably he’ll survive to see July 6. Congratulations once again to the Spinners leadership for an innovative, interesting event.
