Minor league team pranks fans with unwanted ‘game-worn’ giveaways

- July 14th, 2014

Give the Lowell Spinners some credit after putting a new spin (pun intended) on their game-worn giveaway.

The minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox teamed up with Sports Illustrated to produce an in-game experience no fan would touch with a 10-foot pole.

Unless, of course, you don’t tell your fans what they are about to receive.

Various undergarments including underwear, jockstraps and socks, along with personal hygiene products were collected from players and coaches prior to the game, and were tossed to the unsuspecting patrons yearning for a piece of memorabilia.

Some in the stands dropped their “game-worn” giveaway before you could say disinfectant.

It’s one of the more off-beat offers from any sports team in recent memory, judging by the reaction from the fans.
