Brooklyn Cyclones

From BR Bullpen


Team History[edit]

The Brooklyn Cyclones began play in the New York-Penn League in 2001. The St. Catharines Stompers moved to Brooklyn via a one-year temporary stay at St. John's University playing as the Queens Kings. They have been an affiliate of the New York Mets for their entire existence. In their inaugural season, the Cyclones were co-champions of the league. The team plays their home games in KeySpan Park in Brooklyn, NY.

In January 2009, the Cyclones announced that they would play one game (June 23, 2009) as the "Baracklyn Cyclones" in honor of Barack Obama.[1][2]
