The Brooklyn Cyclones will host the 2014 New York Penn League All-Star Game at MCU Park.
“We are excited that the NYPL All-Star Game is coming back to Brooklyn,” Cyclones Vice President Steve Cohen said in a statement. “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 Cyclones have announced that the team has partnered with Mercedes Benz of Brooklyn and TicTocStop.org as the presenting sponsors for the New York-Penn League’s flagship event, according to their press release.
“The New York-Penn League All Star Game has always showcased the finest talent in professional baseball,” NYPL President Ben Hayes said. “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.”
MCU Park also played host to the first-ever NYPL All-Star Game in 2005.
