Brooklyn Cyclones: Baseball for Broke-Asses

Sign up for the best newsletter EVER!

No matter what sports team you like, you are definitely pissing other people off by liking them. I have been heckled on subways, streets and in Whole Foods for wearing my favorite team’s garb in NYC; I have doled it out also. BUT. I have found a magical sports loophole: The Brooklyn Cyclones.

The Cyclones aren’t hurtin’ nobody. They shoot fireworks off at every Saturday game. They have a giant bird mascot that jumps around and makes you feel silly for NOT doing the wave. They play at freakin’ Coney Island. Their tickets are actually affordable at only $8-$16 a pop (I remember there being a student discount too. Brooklyn Lager and Nathan’s Hot Dogs are at prices so relatively low, you don’t have to split them! And if that’s not enough, apparently they also have pro-wrestling.

Check out the full schedule of games HERE.

Jill is an Ohio native and Boston University graduate who refuses to stop saying "pop" and wearing her Red Sox gear despite being heckled for doing so since moving to Brooklyn. She's been honing her thrifty ways since doing that silly thing people talk about when they ignore reason to follow their hearts and chose a career in the fulfilling but faltering music industry. She earns her beer money as a publicist and writer, and spends her spare time cooking, biking, and trying to decide if she's ready to get a cat.

    Staten Island Yankees are fun to see, too, and they’re right at the ferry landing.
