Thursday, June 5th, will mark the 25th anniversary of the Shawon-O-Meter. To commemorate we will be tracking Shawon Dunston Jr.’s batting average remotely in the left field bleachers of Wrigley Field during the Chicago Cubs VS New York Mets 6:05 game. Shawon Jr. is currently playing for the Kane County Cougars (Cubs Single A Affiliate) and their home game against the Clinton Lumberjacks starts at 6:30.
Fans can see Shawon-O-Meter video clips from 1989 and later at the Shawon-O-Meter Facebook page.
The original Shawon-O-Meter is in the Smithsonian Institution, Shawon-O-Meter #2 is currently on display at the Baseball Hall of Fame and Shawon-O-Meter #3 is in the Chicago History Museum.
