brooklyn-cyclones-aug-2010-009.jpgThe Brooklyn Cyclones have quietly released the start times for all 2016 Home Games on their site and there has been a noticeable change.

Weeknight games will continue to start at 7:00 pm. First Pitch will be remain at 6:00 PM for all Saturday home games at MCU Park.

There will be a change in start time for all Sunday home games, as home games will no longer begin at 5:00 PM.

Of the 8 Sunday home games, 5 of them will start at 4:00 PM. (NOTE: SI Yanks have begun their home games at 4:00 PM for a number of years)

2 Sunday games will start at 6:00 PM. On July 3rd and September 4th, the Cyclones will start later to accommodate the Post Game Fireworks. The fireworks will be in honor of Independence Day & Labor Day.

One Sunday home game, July 10th, will begin at 1:00 PM. This will be the 4th Sunday afternoon game the Cyclones have hosted since 2014.

The one downside to the earlier start time is that fans who try to do a New York Mets & Brooklyn Cyclones doubleheader will have less time to travel from Citi Field to MCU Park.

SUNDAY HOME GAMES ( ^ Denotes Mets home game)

  • June 19th vs Tri-City ValleyCats: 4 PM ^
  • June 26th vs Hudson Valley Renegades: 4 PM
  • July 3rd vs Connecticut Tigers: 6 PM (Post Game Fireworks) ^
  • July 10th vs Hudson Valley Renegades: 1 PM ^
  • July 24th vs Staten Island Yankees: 4 PM
  • July 31st vs Aberdeen Ironbirds: 4PM ^
  • August 14th vs West Virginia Black Bears 4PM ^
  • September 4th vs Staten Island Yankees: 6 PM (Post Game Fireworks) ^

The team will also only be having one Camp Day Game. For the last few years, the Cyclones have been having 2 Camp Day Games, but the attendance has dwindled. The lone Camp Day Game will be on Tuesday, August 2nd vs the Aberdeen Ironbirds with game time at 11:30 AM.

Please note that all game times may be subject to change as the season approaches.
