NEWS 12 Brooklyn - "As local as local news gets - only on cable, never
on satellite" Bklyn (4th largest city (2.5M) in the US) is so huge, we
even have our own 24-hr cable news network! LOL...

Baseball fans in our borough lined up for the chance to buy Bklyn
Cyclones tickets. Many waited outside Keyspan Park ($35M stadium) in
Coney Island (America's First Amu***t Park) to welcome this summer's
Minor League Baseball series. News 12's Jeremy Lee has the story:

June the 20th - it may seem far off for some but not for dozens of
Bklyn Cyclones fans that lined up early in the morning at Keyspan Park
to make sure they could score some tickets for the opener. During the
opening day The Brooklyn Cyclones will face off with their rivals, the
Staten Island Yankees. Many here say they wanted to make sure there was
a seat with their names on it. So they showed up despite the cold
weather and the rain, sometimes in the early morning. For those who
didn't score tickets for the opener - there's another chance to see the
rivalry between the Staten Island Yankees and the Bklyn Cyclones. Those
two teams will meet here at home in Coney Island 7x throughout the
season. There are 38 games in all. Home games throughout the season
that Brooklyn fans can attend with prices between $6 & $14 for a
ticket. Many Bklyn fans say it's an affordable way to stay a loyal
Bklyn baseball fan.
