I saw this story a while ago, but I decided I would make mention of it here.
It seems that the Lowell Spinners, a short-season single A minor league affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, have a program in place which is trying to eliminate teams called the Yankees from little league baseball in New England. According to this story, they've so far removed over 100 teams called the Yankees from area little leagues and replaced them with teams called the Spinners.
I personally think that this is hysterical, and you have to admire the fact they have taken the Red Sox/Yankees rivalry to a new level. Hey, if you want to keep the Yankees from recruiting kids as fans, this is a good way to curb that practice. Your move, Staten Island.
