Brooklyn Cyclones Announce Schedule For 2004
The Brooklyn Cyclones’ 2004 game schedule has been finalized, and released by the New York-Penn League office. The team begins its season on the road, before returning to Brooklyn for a home opener on June 22nd against the Hudson Valley Renegades. The Cyclones will again play a total of 38 home games, from June 22nd through September 3rd.
"Despite the snow, and the approaching holidays, the summer is just around the corner," said Cyclones General Manager Steve Cohen. "We are excited to have our game dates in place, so that we can continue preparations for promotional and special event nights. We’re committed to making this season the best in Cyclones’ history."
Brooklyn will take on the rival Staten Island Yankees 12 times in 2004, with each team hosting six games. The Cyclones will also battle familiar opponents like the defending champion Williamsport Crosscutters. The teams have met twice in the league’s championship series in the last three years, including last season. Brooklyn starts 2004 with three games in Williamsport, June 18th - June 20th.
With the exception of Staten Island, the Cyclones will take on all the teams in their division -Williamsport, Aberdeen, Hudson Valley, and New Jersey - 10 times, with each team hosting five games. The Cyclones will also host interdivision play against Mahoning Valley, Lowell, Oneonta, and Batavia.
The Cyclones will begin a renewal process for ticket plan holders shortly after the New Year, followed by a period for new subscriptions. Fans interested in season tickets or mini-plans can add their name to the Cyclones contact list by calling team or by visiting the team’s website at www.brooklyncyclones.com.
