The Brooklyn Cyclones will host the 10th annual New York-Penn League All-Star Game this coming summer. MCU Park, which hosted the first-ever New York-Penn League All-Star Game in 2005, will once again welcome the best the league has to offer on Tuesday, Aug. 19th.
“We are excited that the NYPL All-Star Game is coming back to Brooklyn,” said Cyclones Vice President Steve Cohen. “It’s been almost 10 years since we hosted the game, and we are excited for the opportunity to show the fans, players and executives from around the league the transformation that Coney Island has undergone. It is one of the can’t-miss destinations of summer for the people of New York City, and now because of the New York-Penn League All-Star Game, it is a must-visit destination for people from all over the footprint of our league.”
“The New York-Penn League All Star Game has always showcased the finest talent in professional baseball,” said NYPL President Ben Hayes. “The 2014 All Star Game will be no different, except that it will also showcase one of the finest franchises in professional baseball. The Brooklyn Cyclones have led the League in attendance each year it has operated. More importantly, the Cyclones have consistently set the bar for excellence in their operations, overall fan experience, and community involvement. This year’s All Star Game will celebrate all of that and more.”
“As hosts for the 10th Annual NYPL All-Star Game, we are embracing this opportunity to show the best that not only Brooklyn, but all of New York City, has to offer,” said Cyclones General Manager Kevin Mahoney.
