Welcome to the home page of the Boardwalk Battalion, the exclusive fan group for all Brooklyn Cyclones Fans. All Die Hard Brooklyn Cyclones Fans are welcome to be a part!
The Boardwalk Battalion was founded in February 2016 by Brooklyn Baseball Banter Editor-in-Chief Daniel Weiss, Cyclones FeverCast Host Gary McDonald & Season Ticket Holder Samuel Williams. All fans are welcome to join the Boardwalk Battalion.
The Boardwalk Battalion generally does outing to place like New York Mets games, Brooklyn Cyclones road games, college baseball games at MCU Park, group dinners and more.
OUR NAME & LOGO
When we sought to create the group, we wanted to have a name similar to the The 7 Line Army, (NY Mets) Devil’s Army (NJ Devils) & the Brooklyn Brigade (Brooklyn Nets). We were looking for a name that both a Coney Island relationship & military terminology generally reserved for a group.
After having an open suggestion campaign on Facebook, we narrowed it down to 5 names & allowed fans to vote on it. After a few days of voting, Boardwalk Battalion was the clear winner.
The logo was designed by Gary McDonald, who also designed the logo for Brooklyn Baseball Banter.
Daniel Weiss, who serves as Founder & Editor in Chief of Brooklyn Baseball Banter & an Admin of REAL BKLYN CYCLONES FANS, oversees most of the Boardwalk Battalion. Daniel primarily handles marketing, events and creating the apparel.
Sam Williams, a longtime Season Ticket Holder, helps oversee the selection of dates to use as outings and helps choose the colors for each event.
Gary McDonald, Host of Cyclones FeverCast, helps promote the event and with the purchase of equipment.
All proceeds help fund Boardwalk Battalion from T-shirt sales help fund Cyclones Fevercast. All proceeds from Hoodies & Accessories sales go to help fund Brooklyn Baseball Banter.
