Take me out to ballgame on the cheap, to see NYC’s two “other” baseball teams, the Brooklyn Cyclones and the Staten Island Yankees, with ticket prices from $10 for great seats that include fireworks and all-you-can eat buffets.
The Cyclones are the farm team for the NY Mets, and the “Baby Bombers” are the Minor League team for the NY Yankees.
Get tickets now for the Staten Island Yankees game on July 4th that includes fireworks. Tickets are $24, but other games, through August, are $18. These Yankees play in a modern stadium, steps from the Staten Island Ferry, with fabulous views of the Manhattan skyline. Former Major Leaguers Robinson Cano, Francisco Cervelli, Brett Gardner and Melky Cabrera have all worn the Staten Island pinstripes, so you might just see some of tomorrow’s great stars at the ballpark today. Select games offer a ticket packages, which comes a limited-edition Staten Island Yankees baseball cap, and a wristband for access to all-you-can-eat ballpark specials, including hot dogs, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches, chips, and non-alcoholic beverages.
Brooklyn Cyclones are the farm team for the NY Mets, and play in a modern stadium steps from the boardwalk in Coney Island. The Cyclones have won two New York-Penn League titles, and have sent over two dozen players to the major leagues since their founding in 2001. They are led by manager Tom Gamboa, who brings over 30 years of coaching experience to the Cyclones dugout. July 5 is “Seinfeld” night, when the first 2,500 fans to the park will receive “Little Jerry” bobble heads and stars from the hit show will sign autographs. Get tickets here for $10 for games in July.
