Baseball fell victim to political correctness for just one night in Massacusetts when the Lowell Spinners took on the Brooklyn Cyclones in what was billed as Political Correctness night.
So what happens whn political correctness reigns? The frst, second and third basemen became “base persons”, and the shortstop was referred to as a “vertically challlenged stop.”
To top it off errors weren’t announced to the crowd lest they offend anyone.
In the end while the promotion didn’t help the Spinners as they lost 9-5 it did point out the insanity of the politically correct movement and in Massachusetts no less.
No word on whether or not fans were forced to wear politically correct clothing.
