The Brooklyn Cyclones play their season opener tonight. They’re squaring off against the Staten Island Yankees at MCU Park at 1904 Surf Avenue.

This year’s team is one of the youngest in franchise history with eight teenagers on the roster.

One of the young players joining the team is 19-year-old Brandon Nimmo. He was the New York Mets’ first round selection in the 2011 MLB Draft. Nimmo hails from Cheyenne East High School in Wyoming.

On top of new team members, there are a lot of other changes the franchise has made for the 2012 season. Things to look forward to include the Brooklyn Baseball Gallery now featuring skee ball and alcohol, a chance to meet players from 6 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. during every game, brand new flagship radio station, 89.5 FM WSOU broadcasting the games, and a social media scoreboard showcasing tweets about the game.

Good luck to the Cyclones this year, we’ll be rooting for you.

    they need a TV station to show the games. Sometimes PBS does like 1 game here and there but they need a local station to pick up every home game at least, say NYCLF channel 22 on Cablevision or MSG Varsity channel 14 or one of the BCAT channels… radio is so early 1900s

    The clones have a second rate Web Site. I went on to buy tickets using a ValPak Promotion Code and there is no place on the ticket site to enter a Promo Code. Then I tried to call the box office and was enduring a recoreded announcement. Then I sent the Clones a email and got no response. No wonder they are a short season Class Single A team, ditto their front office…..
