Battalion LogoTonight is a big night for Brooklyn Cyclones fans, as it is Brooklyn Cyclones Season Ticket Holder night at Citi Field, giving us a chance to see some former Cyclones in the Major Leagues. It is also a group outing for the Boardwalk Battalion to see the Mets play & get free Mike Piazza jerseys.

1st Pitch between the NY Mets and Cincinnati Reds is called for 7:10 PM. Bartolo Colon (1-1; 2.89 ERA) will be taking the hill for the Mets with southpaw Brandon Finnegan (1-1; 3.74) pitching for the Reds.


  • The former Cyclones on the Mets are: Jeurys Familia, Hansel Robles, Kevin Plawecki, Eric Campbell, Lucas Duda, Wilmer Flores, Michael Conforto & Juan Lagares
  • The gates to Citi Field will open at 5:10 PM, 2 hours before the start of the game.
  • Fans may bring outside food into Citi Field, but there are some restrictions, which can be found HERE.
  • Fans can bring in plastic, factory sealed, unfrozen, water bottles or juice boxes.
  • Save some money by signing up to be a Designated Driver and receive a free 21 ounce soda.
  • Fans who are celebrating Passover can bring in outside food. For those who are stricter about not eating any Chametz, they can sign up for designated driver, ask for just a cup of ice & fill their cup at the water fountain. Purchasing a bottle of water is also acceptable.

Earlier forecasts called for rain, but it looks like we will be good for tonight. It might rain a bit before the game, leading to a delayed start, but the game is most likely to be played.


If it were to rain and the game were to be postponed, it would most likely be played tomorrow, 4/27, as part of a doubleheader, probably a separate admission, day / night doubleheader.

Those who purchased tickets for the Boardwalk Battalion Outing should wait for an announcement from me, once my ticket rep contacts me.

For those who received tickets from the Cyclones, would most likely be able to use them for Wednesday’s doubleheader, should the game gets rained out.


About Daniel S. Weiss

I have been an avid Cyclones fan since 2001. In December of 2013 I decided to launch my own blog "Brooklyn Baseball Banter" to cover the Brooklyn Cyclones.

  1. […] While he was not a Cyclone, join fellow fans to honor Mike Piazza as he enters the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Boardwalk Battalion members are encouraged to wear Mike Piazza jerseys, especially if they got one from the outing in April. […]
