Brooklyn Cyclones Baseball 2007

The Brooklyn Cyclones are a minor league baseball team in the short season single "A" New York - Penn League, affiliated with the New York Mets. The Cyclones play at KeySpan Park just off the boardwalk on Coney Island on West 19 Street and Mermaid Ave.

On July 20, 2006, the Cyclones and the Oneonta Tigers took part in the longest game in the history of the New York-Penn League, a 26-inning marathon which the Cyclones lost, 6-1. The game took 6 hours and 40 minutes to complete. The Cyclones scored their lone run in the first inning; Oneonta tied the game in the fourth and then did not score again until they scored five runs in the top of the 26th.

Their season begins June 19th and if you haven’t been to a game before it is one of the most interesting things to do on a hot summer day, watching the sunset over Coney Island and eating way to many hotdogs!
