The 2015 Brooklyn Cyclones schedule was released today. The season will begin on Friday, June 19th in Staten Island, with the Cyclones having the home opener the following night in Coney Island. They will close out the season with a 3 game homestand against the Yankees on Labor Day weekend.
The season is also 2 days longer, with the league having 5 off days, July 7th, 14th, 27th and the 2 Day All Star Break on August 17th & 18th.
The Cyclones will host a 3 game homestand vs the Williamsport Crosscutters on July 4th weekend. The 2 Camp Day games will take place on consecutive Mondays, the 13th & 20th of July, taking on the Ironbirds and Lake Monsters, respectively. Due to the success of the 2014 Sunday Day game last season, the Cyclones will have 2 Sunday games at 1:00pm when they take on the Batavia Muckdogs on August 2nd and on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend against the Yankees.
A change in scheduling comes with the relocation of the Jamestown Jammer to Morgantown, WV. The Cyclones will take on the Staten Island Yankees 12 times, down from 14. They take on the Hudson Valley Renegades 14 times and the Aberdeen Ironbirds 9 times. They previously played those 2 teams 10 times a season.
Another change is that the Cyclones will not play Hudson Valley until July 1st and Aberdeen until July 11th. Last season, the Cyclones only played McNamara Division teams until July 8th.
The Cyclones will not host the Auburn Doubledays, the Mahoning Valley Scrappers, or the West Virginia Black Bears. They will not play any games in Batavia, State College or Williamsport
