Baseball Summer, Coney Island

We were in NYC for a few days. I had never been to Coney Island. When I found out they had a single A team called the Cyclones, I figured what a great way to start the Baseball part of the tour.

After a nice long subway ride from Harlem (about an hour) we arrived in Coney Island. It is one big amusement park, the kind where you should watch your wallet.

About the first thing you see as you exit the train is where the world famous hot dog eating contest is held every fourth of July.

Nathans hot dogs are the preffered brand in many east coast ballparks. They are not Dodger Dogs, but they are pretty good.

Then, to get to the ballpark, you pass the roller coasters and such.

I am not sure what this one is called, but it sits beyond the left field fence and you can watch people losing their Nathans hot dogs while you watch the game.

Then I passed a bar that had this logo out front. The Brooklyn B, inside the Deadhead skull. I knew I was in the right place.

It was now time to buy a ticket. Mets? You they are the low A team in the Mets organization.

One thing about minor league teams is that they have cheerleaders

Minor league baseball also has funny mascots, hot dog races, T-shirt tosses and a lot of things to attract a crowd.

I was there to watch the game and I put my camera away. I think the Cyclones lost, but everyone had a good time.

OK, a short post once again. If you liked it, share it. And if your fingers are attched to your brain, drop a comment, please.
