Brooklyn Cyclones: Opening Day ... and Night

From the desk of:  THE CONEY ISLAND NINE

*  *   2016   *  *

Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball Club


Went to get my tickets earlier in the afternoon.

Made my way through the front gates,

quickly grabbed a game program, and checked out the starting line-ups.

But someone clearly dropped the ball here.
#66 Ferrera CF - was slated to lead-off for both teams.

After team introductions,

The Brooklyn Cyclones took the field.

Home plate umpire then made the call to

First Pitch of the 2016 Season

Enmanuel Zabala actually batted lead-off for the Cyclones, 
and led-off the bottom of the first inning with a home run off the left field scoreboard.

The Brooklyn Cyclones opened their 16th regular season against chief rival Staten Island at Coney Island Friday evening, and wound up essentially playing a double-header, plus!  The Cyclones and Yankees played 20 innings on Opening Night before a winner was decided.  Unfortunately for Cyclones fans, Staten Island prevailed.

The Cyclones will travel to Staten Island today to complete their home-and-home opening series against the Baby Bombers.
