Who's going with me ?
GEORGE “THE ANIMAL” STEELE COMING TO CLIPPER MAGAZINE STADIUM
Wednesday, August 26, 2009
The no-holds barred wrestler famous for biting his opponents and eating turnbuckles is paying a visit to Clipper Magazine Stadium. George “The Animal” Steele will be a special guest for the Barnstormers’ game against the Bridgeport Bluefish on Aug. 26 at 7:05 p.m.
Steele, who was elected to the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2005, will be signing autographs, taking photos and throwing out a ceremonial first pitch. There will also be a meet and greet with fans in one of the stadium’s luxury boxes.
Steele retired as a full-time wrestler in 1989, although he has made cameo appearances through the years. During his heyday, he was best known for his flying hammerlock move and the Neanderthal persona he created as part of his act inside the ring. The Florida resident has a Master’s degree from Central Michigan and has dedicated his post-wrestling life to fighting dyslexia and Chrohn’s Disease.
Tickets are still available for this one-of-a-kind event. Just log onto www.lancasterbarnstormers.com, call 717-509-HITS or visit the Clipper Magazine Stadium box office during regular business hours.
