Outstanding!

The Cyclones have been honored with the 2009 Vincent McNamara Award, given annually to the New York-Penn League's Outstanding Club!

This is the second such award for the Cyclones (we won it in 2003, as well) and at the risk of sounding like Ron Burgundy, it's kind of a big deal. Being named the top team in the NYPL is a rewarding recognition of our staff's efforts and our fans' ongoing support...so feel free to celebrate along with us!


And that's not all. By virtue of winning this award, we have also been nominated for the John H. Johnson President's Trophy, which is given annually to the Minor League Baseball club that "best exemplifies the standards of the complete baseball franchise, such as financial success of operation, contributions to baseball in the community and baseball industry, and long-term franchise stability."

This is pretty much the industry's top honor, and we've been working on our nomination presentation, which we will be submitting today. Keep your fingers crossed. We'll be up against very stiff competition -- high-level, long-season teams from around the country -- but we all know Brooklyn never backs down from a challenge!

Thanks, as always, for your support, and for being a part of our team. Without you, we wouldn't win any of these awards!
