Dan Giese Makes MLB Debut

Former Lowell Spinner Dan Giese made his Major League debut on September 8 as a relief pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, striking out one batter in two scoreless innings. He became the 31st former Spinner to make the Majors and the sixth this season, the most ever in a year.

Giese appeared in 33 games as a Spinners reliever and closer in 2000 and 2001, going 3-0 with 11 saves and 47 strikeouts in 54.0 innings pitched with Lowell.

Congratulations to Dan and the rest of the Spinners crew to make it to the bigs this season!

    DEAR Drew & Spinners Family,

    Hope all is going well. It has been a while since we met in Lowell, Dan’s first taste of Baseball Heaven. Since 1999 we knew that this day would come for Dan, however, we did not think that he would be enduring so long in the firery furnace of the minor leagues. From our family to yours, we give to you all in Spinner Country a warm heart felt Thank You for all you have done for Dan and us all while visiting your First Class Yard in Lowell. May God Richly Bless you all Mightily for all your acts of Good Will and Kindness beyond Measure !!! Lowell AND THE Weber’s will always have a special place in our hearts & memories.


    Al & Elaine Giese & Family
