On Monday, August 24th, Roberto Clemente, Jr. -- son of Hall-of-Fame right fielder Roberto Clemente -- will throw out the ceremonial first pitch at KeySpan Park, prior to the Cyclones' 7pm game against the Vermont Lake Monsters.
The Cyclones will be collecting new or gently used baseball equipment from Monday, August 24th through Wednesday, August 26th, to donate to Roberto’s Kids. All fans that participate will receive raffle tickets and have a chance to win great Cyclones prizes.
Roberto’s Kids is a non-profit organization that seeks to provide the equipment necessary for youngsters around the world to be introduced to the game of baseball and thereby develop social and community responsibility through the character built playing the game.
