We've seen World Series MVP David Eckstein in pretty much every possible situation this winter, fooling around with pro wrestlers, showing up in wedding magazines and, of course, chugging tequila straight out of the bottle. So it's inevitable that he'd end up promoting stepstools for really short people.
The Lowell Spinners announced today that July 20 will be David Eckstein World Series MVP Step Stool Giveaway Night at LeLacheur Park, sponsored by Merrimack Valley Credit Union and Textron Systems. The first 1,500 fans entering the ballpark that night will receive a kid's step stool bearing the likeness of the two-time World Champion. Eckstein himself is very excited about the boost the step-stool will give him in his daily life.
"I'm definitely a kid-type person. If you're short like me, it's useful," said Eckstein. "It came about because (Lowell Spinners Vice President of Communications, Jon Goode's) son was looking for a step stool and I thought I could use something like that at home too, and even at my locker so I can actually see what's on the top shelf instead of using a chair. Everyone does the bobblehead, but this is something unique."
If Eckstein doesn't take the stepstool and brain a child with it, we're going to be sorely disappointed.
