November 11, 2016 -- The New York-Penn League has announced its schedule for the 2017 season, which will begin on Monday, June 19th. The Brooklyn Cyclones will open their 17th season against Staten Island at Richmond County Bank Ballpark before opening the home slate the following date at MCU Park. The 2017 season will mark the first in which their cross-bridge rivals will not be known as the Yankees. Their new moniker will be announced in the coming weeks.
The most noticeable difference to the 2017 schedule will be the Friday start time of 6:40 PM for all Cyclones home games, in hopes of being able to complete the game prior to the start of the world famous Coney Island Fireworks display. In recent years, these post-game fireworks shows have become more along the lines of an in-game fireworks show and the change in start time hopes to alleviate this issue.
Another change to the schedule, which was adopted across the New York-Penn League, is that teams will not play all 13 other clubs in the NYPL. For example, Brooklyn does not play Auburn, Batavia or Williamsport in 2017.
Season ticket holders will be receiving information about their options for the 2017 season and group tickets, as well as mini plan information, will be available in the weeks ahead. For more information please contact the Cyclones ticket office at 718-37-BKLYN.
