Spinx, Drive Allowing Fan to Throw Out First Pitch on Spinx Wednesdays

The Spinx Co. and the Greenville Drive have teamed up to allow fans the chance to throw the first pitch of the game on Spinx Wednesdays at Fluor Field.

Spinx will pick a fan from its Facebook page, facebook.com/TheSpinxCompany, to throw the first pitch at the Spinx Wednesday Day. The fan also will receive 20 Greenville Drive admission tickets so family and friends can cheer them on.

“We want our customers to have fun so we worked with the Drive to create Spinx Wednesdays”, stated Stewart Spinks, chief executive of The Spinx Company. “This gives us the opportunity to reward some of our biggest fans, our Facebook friends, with a fun and unique experience at a Greenville Drive game.”

Spinx is sponsoring six Spinx Wednesdays during the 2011 season: April 13 and 27, May 25, July 13 and Aug. 17. A winner will be chosen from both current and new fans of the Spinx Facebook page on the Monday prior to the Spinx Wednesday game, with six different winners chosen during the season.

“Spinx is one of the best partners that the Drive could ask for, said Mike deMaine, Drive general manager. “The values of both organizations are very similar in that we each strive to provide the Upstate with high quality products and customer service, and convenience.”

To kick off the promotion, fans can meet members of the Drive and Reedy Rip’It at the Spinx at Cherrydale/Pleasantburg between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. They can receive free samples from Pepsi and Spinx. The company also will be registering fans to win 10 Greenville Drive general admission tickets.
