These are uh, something else

Hey 90s kids, are you tired of only being pandered/advertised to by BuzzFeed lists, dance parties, TV marathons, film remakes and reboots and sequels, music samples and band reunion tours? We know, when will anyone ever pay attention to the 90s? The Brooklyn Cyclones are doing their part next Wednesday, August 27 with a 90s Nickelodeon night. Why should you go, besides the baseball? Well, Kel Mitchell is throwing out the first pitch, so it’ll answer your “Hey, where’s Kel Mitchell been these days?” question. (more…)

What’s green, plays the banjo and hits Coney Island this Monday?  No, not you after scarfing too many Nathan’s dogs and riding the Cyclone – Kermit the Frog!  On Monday, August 4, Kermit and friends will make a special appearance at MCU Park as the Brooklyn Cyclones take on the hated Connecticut Tigers. Fresh off being revealed as the reason that you moved to New York City, the Muppets will be trying to bring some luck to the Cyclones in their pennant chase. (more…)

Are you bummed that you missed the Brooklyn Cyclones “A Salute to Seinfeld” on July 5? Not us, we’re more bummed we missed getting a closeup view of Dillon Gee strike out ten guys on a rehab start on July 4. Still, if you’re bummed you missed all the Elaine dancing and puffy shirts, a number of entrepreneurs will help you out by selling you a Keith Hernandez bobblehead from that night, for (at a minimum) only three times the price of a Cyclones ticket. Can you imagine the price if Keith had made the Hall of Fame? (more…)

A happy recap is even happier when it comes at half the cost. via Facebook

At 31-38 and sitting perilously close to last place in the NL East, the Mets might be inspiring feelings of sadness and frustration if you’re a fan. “It’s depressing,” you’re probably thinking, “that 400-year-old Bobby Abreu is probably the team’s best hitter. Can the Mets even physically score more than five runs in two straight games?” It’s okay, we’re here to help, with half-price Brooklyn Cyclones tickets, so you can catch future Mets who might make watching the parent club more bearable.

You too can root root root for the home team. via Facebook

It’s been professional baseball season for a little over a month now, and hey, the Mets haven’t been a completely embarrassment. There’s some other professional baseball team around here too, but we don’t talk about them. The only problem with the Mets is that despite all the Groupons and giveaways, they’re still usually an expensive ticket. So thank goodness the Brooklyn Cyclones are here to provide us with truly cheap baseball down at the beach, and thank even more goodness that tickets to see them go on sale tomorrow, May 10, at 10am.

The only remaining question is whether the Staten Island Yankees hold a “Todd Barry Night” in retaliation

There’s nothing like minor league baseball promotions, especially when the Cyclones do them. Already the proud organizers of Manti Te’o night, along with both a Williamsburg night and a dinosaur night, they know how to do the ridiculous but intriguing really well. And that tradition will carry on this year when for whatever reason, the team honors the 25th anniversary of the July 5 Seinfeld premiere, by holding “Salute to Seinfeld Night” at MCU Park. Sorry, we meant Vandelay Industries Park. And that’s just the tip of the Seinfeld iceberg. (more…)

Don’t let the sun set on your summer without getting lucky

Is it a stretch to call this a nutty promotion? via Facebook

Is it a stretch to call this a nutty promotion? via Facebook

Minor league baseball serves two purposes. The first is to provide a proving ground for young talent to show they belong in the major leagues, since not everyone is formed fully grown from the head of Sandy Koufax like New York’s new boyfriend Matt Harvey. The second is to provide wacky promotion nights that their parent clubs can’t hold. So imagine our surprise when we woke up to find out that a San Francisco Giants affiliate from Virginia announced their plans to hold an Anthony Weiner-themed $1 hot dog night. (more…)

Beer, baseball, BBQ, and egalitarian outdoor space—Independence Day represents the apple-pie epitome of American pride.

The problem is that all this patriotic partying can get quite pricey. Here is our guide to binging on broad stripes and bright stars for the budget conscious; after all, Brooklyn is the land of opportunity (for cheap happenings at least). (more…)
