A constant in the Cyclones’ history is their fierce rivalry against the Staten Island Yankees, and this rivalry can be seen in action on Wednesday, July 19 at CAMBA’s Night at the Ballpark!
Brooklyn residents have always had a sweet spot for baseball. Therefore, the Dodgers’ move to Los Angeles in 1957 left a huge void in Brooklynites’ favorite summertime activity. Forty-four years later, after an intense public “Name the Team” contest, the Brooklyn Cyclones were born to fill this gap.
Over the past 16 years, the Cyclones’ performance has seen many ups and unfortunately a few downs, but their record-setting attendance and exuberant fan support has never wavered. The Brooklyn Cyclones were the fastest organization in the history of the New York-Penn League to reach the three-million fan mark, in 2011, just ten years after the team’s beginning.*
Another constant in the Cyclones’ history is their fierce rivalry against the Staten Island Yankees, and this rivalry can be seen in action on Wednesday, July 19 at CAMBA’s Night at the Ballpark! This exciting event takes place at 1904 Surf Avenue, Brooklyn at MCU Park, located within the colorful and lively setting of Coney Island. Field seat tickets can be purchased for $30 each, with a Brooklyn Cyclones hat per seat. Additionally, there is a special offer for $90, when you buy three field box seats the fourth comes for free. Lastly, you can gain access to our catered luxury suite for $175 per person with a complimentary Cyclones hat for each attendee. Hurry up and get your tickets—last year they sold out!
