The Lowell Spinners are masterminds at marketing and promotions, and theyve rediscovered a classic with the Boston Bruins best and most in-demand young player.
Speed Dating with Tyler Seguin will take place during a Lowell Spinners game at LeLacheur Field on Aug. 15.
Seguins teammate Dennis Seidenberg was part of Champions Night at a Lowell Spinners game earlier this season along with former Red Sox closer Keith Foulke, but Seguin gets his own night for a speed dating promotion during a game against the Aberdeen Ironbirds.
While ardent Bruins fans will probably want to know what Seguins involvement will be in the power play next season, there will also undoubtedly be star-struck female sports fans ready to swoon over one of Bostons most eligible bachelors.
Fans will have the opportunity throughout the evening to win a chance to spend time with the Bs All-Star during the game, and each winner will be allowed to bring their family to spend five minutes with Seguin in a private suite at the ballpark in Lowell.
The five-minute dating session will allow fans to ask Seguin questions, take photos, get autographs, enjoy the game and according to the Spinners release who knows, even score a phone number.
Who knows? Perhaps some intrepid Seguin fanatic can even get to the bottom of why the former No. 2 overall pick was late to the team breakfast meeting in Winnipeg last season, or try on Seguins Stanley Cup championship ring for size.
When we asked the question, Who would be the one person in the Boston area that a speed dating event planner would want more than anyone? the answer to us was Tyler Seguin, said Spinners Vice President of Corporate Communications Jon Goode, who also plays host to the Milan Lucic Rock & Jock Softball Classic on Aug. 22. He is one of Bostons most sought-after bachelors.
There wont be any rose ceremony, which should be a disappointment to Seguin as a big fan of The Bachelor television show. But winners will be picked throughout the evening via Spinners Game Day program, social media sites, online auction and gameday contests.
Tickets to the game are available now at www.LowellSpinners.com or by phone at 978-459-1702. The Speed Dating contestants will be selected before and during the game on Aug. 15.
