George Abinader was honored as a Hero Among Us at the August 25th Lowell Spinners game against the Connecticut Tigers. As the Heroes Among Us honoree, Abinader took part in the opening ceremonies of the game, ate All You Can Eat BBQ in the Gator Pit and watched the game in the luxurious Yawkey Suite with family members and friends.
His citation reads:
George Abinader enlisted in the U.S. Marines and was training to be a helicopter mechanic when he was very severely injured in a motor vehicle accident. He spent the next year and a half in various VA hospitals working tirelessly at recovering from all-but- total body paralysis. George has recovered to the point that he is now able to live independently. George is an inspiration to all who come in contact with him.
