Cyclones Spin into Brooklyn this Summer

Damn the Yankees, forget the Mets, and give a warm New York welcome to the Brooklyn Cyclones, the first professional baseball team to play in Brooklyn since the Dodgers left town more than 40 years ago. A farm team of the New York Mets, the Cyclones whip into action in a 6,500-seat stadium built along the beach on Coney Island. It’s just a few hundred yards from the world-famous Cyclone roller coaster — a guarantee that fans are in for a thrilling ride. The team’s home opener is June 25. Tickets start at $6. (718) 499-8497,
