Brooklyn Baseball Banter has received info from the Brooklyn Cyclones front office that the Brooklyn Cyclones will be re-branding that night to the Coney Island Franks, as a “Change the Name Night.”
Many teams do a game where they change the name of the team to another name that was considered during the “Name the Team” contests. According to past Cyclones programs and media guides, some of the names that topped the list during the “Name the Team” contest were the “The Honeymooners,” “Da Bums” & “The Hot Dogs.”
As part of the promo, fans will receive a limited edition, Coney Island Franks cap as they enter the gates of MCU Park that night.
The team will most likely have special event jerseys and caps that will say or have the logo of the Coney Island Franks.
In other related promo news, this season, only the 1st 2,000 fans to enter MCU Park will receive any giveaway this season, except the 4 Jersday Thursdays this season. Those days, the 1st 2,500 will get jerseys.
These giveaway numbers are down from 2,500 & 3,000, respectability. Part of this move may be effected by the removal of the bleachers in RF.
