Thanks to all who came out on Friday for Sheepshead Bites Night at MCU Park (a.k.a. Cyclones stadium). Sure, the game itself got rained out (allowing you to enjoy another game at the park any time between now and August 19, 2012 – contact MCU Park for details), but we still had a great time.

Not only did we get to do most of our on-field presentation, in which we had the spectacular students from Covenant Ballet Theater of Brooklyn Dance Academy give an enjoyable pre-game show, as well as honoring St. Mark Catholic Church on their 150th Anniversary with a certificate of appreciation – but we also got to meet tons of readers on the mezzanine. In a way, we actually liked that the game was rained out; it meant throngs of fans came to wile the hours away at the Sheepshead Bites table. Sayin’ hello and sippin’ beers: that’s what it’s all about.

We didn’t get to have our Pitch-to-Pitch contest winner – Boris Royzen – throw out the first pitch in his speedos (actually, the Cyclones nixed the speedos anyway; but he should’ve gotten a pitch!). We also didn’t get to see our videos on the jumbotron. We’re looking to get that righted as soon as possible. We did, however, get rid of a ton of the specially made game night Sheepshead Bites t-shirts. There’s still a few left, so if you’re interested in purchasing one, e-mail marketing [at] sheepsheadbites [dot] com. T-shirts are just $10!

Now, a few thanks are in order. Thanks so much to the Brooklyn Cyclones and their manager Steve Cohen for hosting us and making the night possible. Thanks to the Sheepshead Bites staff and volunteers who went above and beyond in disgusting weather to make it all happen. And thanks, especially, to Bites Business Manager Robert Fernandez, who created the event, organized it, and saw it through to the very end.

Lastly, thanks to all of our sponsors who helped make the night a success. Here they are, listed in no particular order.

Make sure you stop by one or more of the above establishments and thank them for supporting local news!

Also, a huge thanks to Nick Lakiotes of Backweeds.com for designing the beautiful t-shirt!

Now, without further ado, here’s a collection of shots from Sheepshead Bites writer and photographer Erica Sherman:

    And no thanks to the artist responsible for the work of art seen in so many of your pictures. Why is that?

      HERIBERTO FERRER is the incredibly talented, generous and humble artist who created out new mascot. That fish was the talk of the evening. Thank you Heriberto!
