Last week, ST took me to my first minor league baseball game. We watched the Brooklyn Cyclones play at MCU Park in Coney Island. The whole experience was super fun and very family- and kid-oriented. Perfect for future family outings.
The tickets are pretty cheap ($17 each) and the park is small so you’re not far from the field no matter where you sit. We bought the tickets 20 minutes before the game and we still had good seats.
The Cyclones were playing the Massachusetts Spinners. The cool thing was that since Jose Reyes recently injured his hamstring (we were at that game too), he was playing at this game!
Minor league games are more fun than major league ones because there are cheerleaders, mascots, and other characters that entertain people. Even the people are entertaining – one guy brought his own bunny puppet. Weird. Don’t ever talk to anyone who owns a bunny puppet.
There’s also a calendar of special events. The day we went was Meet the Cyclones Day. I got so excited thinking I’d get to meet Jose Reyes. He left early to go to Citi Field and play another game with the Mets. Boo : (
ST was not happy that the Cyclones lost.
I had so much fun. Who cares who won? Just kidding… go Cyclones!
Our summer goal of doing new things is going well : )
