Get rid of the Yankees in your community:
The Lowell Spinners want to eliminate the Yankees again – from youth baseball leagues in New England.
The minor league baseball team said Wednesday it will continue the campaign it launched last year. The team will donate hats and pay $200 toward the cost of new uniforms to teams in leagues that change the name of their Yankees teams to the Spinners.
The Spinners are a Class A affiliate of the Boston Red Sox [team stats], archrival of the New York Yankees.
Last year, 76 Yankees teams were replaced, the team said. The Spinners said 43 teams have contacted them for this season. The promotion will be limited to 100 teams, the Spinners said.
