We've announced a very cool opportunity for young fans -- the chance to design your own uniform that the Cyclones will wear on the field!

The YOUniform contest (get it? Because you make the uniform. We love wacky wordplay around here) will also raise money for a great cause, as the team's jerseys will be auctioned off throughout the game in which they're worn, with proceeds going to Camp Brooklyn. Camp Brooklyn was founded by Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz to give children from low-income homes an opportunity to attend a sleep-away camp at no cost to the camper.

We're asking students from 5-16 years old to create a jersey design with a baseball and/or Brooklyn theme. We'll choose the top five designs and then post them on to let the fans vote for their favorite.

The winner will receive a Cyclones prize pack, a framed jersey signed by the 2010 Cyclones, and will throw out a ceremonial first pitch before the game in which their YOUniform will be worn!

It's a great contest for a great cause, with great prizes for the winner! Design your own YOUniform, and get in on the fun!

Check out the rules, and get an entry form here

Too bad I'm just a smidgeon too old to enter this contest...
I always love the Jersey Raffles, so it'll be terrific to see the winning entry.
Plus, I just saw the story on the Jersey giveaway nights - can't wait for those as well.
Here's looking forward to a GREAT summer (hard to imagine when we've got this cold weather, though)!
