CYCLONES SEARCH FOR MASCOT

Do you know how to moonwalk, while wearing giant foam feet? Can you reach the Suite Level when you throw t-shirts into the crowd? Can you communicate using only your wings and an expressionless top-heavy headpiece? Are you able to perform your assigned tasks under the pressure of dozens of kids punching you below the belt? If so, the Cyclones may be looking for you!

Brooklyn’s one and only professional baseball team is searching for the prefect person to fill the sizeable shoes of the borough’s favorite mascots – Sandy the Seagull and Pee Wee!

“Sandy and Pee Wee are the faces of the Cyclones,” said the team’s General Manager, Steve Cohen. “We are looking for someone with the energy, enthusiasm, talent, and dedication to truly give life to our mascots – both figuratively and literally.”

These part-time, seasonal positions report directly to the Community Relations Manager and will be responsible for performing at all 38 Cyclones home games, as well as off-site events throughout the community.

Candidates are encouraged to email their qualifications, resumes, videos – and anything else they think might help them get the job – to the Cyclones’ Community Relations Manager, Elizabeth Lombardi, at liz@brooklyncyclones.com or call 718-37-BKLYN.
