Besides an interesting 7-6 win over the Batavia Muck Dogs
, Lowell Spinner
fans also had a rare glimpse of a true American legend: The Great Chubby Checker
The Chubby One (he really is too!) threw out the first pitch in tonight's game, revealing a form reminiscent of El Guapo in his prime. In Chubby's honor, the Spinners
arranged for a number of kids to do The Twist
and have Chubby judge their style. You 'shoulda been there.
Players to Watch: Blake Maxwell
, the Spinners
closer; 1-1 with three saves, 1.06 ERA in 10G and 18 IP, 12Ks, 1BB.
