Kerouac Bobble Head Night 2013: Lowell Spinners vs. Brooklyn Cyclones

Tonight, Thursday, July 25, the Lowell Spinners play the Brooklyn Cyclones at 7pm at Lelacheur Park in Lowell. (Get tickets.) Last year, the Spinners offered a Jack Kerouac bobble head--or bobble thumb, rather--doll to the first 1000 ticket holders. This year, the Spinners will be offering a bobble head doll featuring Jack Kerouac in his Lowell High School football uniform.

Jack Kerouac's Lowell tour series continues in June!

Update, June 7: Bum deal. The weather in Lowell on June 8 will be very New Englandish (bad), so the June 8 tour is cancelled.
