CYniE1UWwAAqaebAnother season of NY-Penn League baseball is upon us, and that means we will be getting a ton of giveaway items.

From bobbleheads, to hats, to everyday items with our team’s logo on it, many of us arrive early to get such cherished giveaway items before watching our team play the game.

Brooklyn Cyclones @ Staten Island Yankees

Opening Night in Staten Island

CYniE1UWwAAqaebIn usual Brooklyn Cyclones & Staten Island Yankees tradition, the 2nd game of the season shifts from 1 ballpark to the other. So, the Cyclones will head across the Verrazano Bridge to RCB Ballpark.

Like MCU Park this off-season, RCB Ballpark has seen seen some changes. They have replaced their video board system with a new state-of-the-art system. The famous All-You-Can-Eat Ballpark Buffet has been scrapped due to the high costs.

The Yankees also have a new boss, in Team President Will Smith. Smith comes from the Yankees AA team, the Trenton Thunder. Like the famous actor, he is married to a Jada Smith.

Like the Cyclones, and almost every other team in sports, the Yankees will be following longtime sports tradition and giving away Magnetic Schedules to the 1st 2,500 fans into RCB Ballpark. The Magnetic Schedules are presented by Richmond County Savings Bank.

The gates of RCB Ballpark will open at 6:00 PM.

Following the game will be Post-Game Fireworks show with New York Harbor in the background.

Tri-City ValleyCats @ Brooklyn Cyclones

Michael Conforto Bobblehead Giveaway

June 20 2016The series against the ValleyCats continues on Monday, as the Cyclones will be giving out bobbleheads of Michael Conforto, sponsored by MCU. Conforto spent the 2014 season in Brooklyn before making his way to the Mets and bring part of the playoff roster that saw them play in the World Series last season. The Boardwalk Battalion will be wearing Michael Conforto gear.

The Michael Conforto Bobbleheads will be given out to the 1st 2,000 fans into MCU Park on Monday. Make sure to get there early, as the lines will be very long. The gates are scheduled to open at 5:15 for Season Ticket Holders and 5:30 for everyone else. Following the game, everyone gets to run the bases.

There is no word if Michael Conforto will show up for the game. The New York Mets are off that day and not scheduled to travel.
