A Day in the Life (of a Beach Bum)

In the days and weeks to come, the Blog is going to get you even further behind-the-scenes with "Day in the Life" videos that give you a glimpse of what goes into creating the one-of-a-kind atmosphere at KeySpan Park.

From dancers to facepainters, kings to clowns, jugglers to pink apes -- every Cyclones game is filled with so much more than just great baseball (although we have that, too...and we'll get you behind the scenes with the players, as well).

Today's installment takes us into a day in the life with Avrey, the captain & choreographer of the Beach Bums.

Avrey's been dancing her whole life, but this year took on a new challenge as the leader of the Beach Bums. The Bums not only give the Cyclones a new energy with their dance moves, but are also team ambassadors. They're interacting with fans, staff, kids, community partners, and more. They can be found throwing t-shirts, signing autographs, taking pictures, handing out giveaway items, helping with on-field promotions...and learning the finer points of baseball (slowly, but surely...Mary even knows where left field is now!).

Check out the video below for a quick look at some of what goes into a Day in the Life, with Avrey and the Beach Bums:
