‘Clones, Straw Tread Dangerously Close To Charles Oakley’s Bread & Butter

Posted in Baseball at 6:02 pm by

It’s been a glamorous week for the NY-Penn League Brooklyn Cyclones; not only has Keyspan Park been graced with the presence of Ryan Church and first-round draft picks Reese Havens and Ike Davis, the ‘Lil Wilpon have announced that Darryl Strawberry will be on hand for Monday’s game versus Hudson Valley :

Strawberry will be appearing on behalf of Spongetech – the ultimate one-step wash and wax system.  Darryl will personally present the winner (or loser, depending on how you look at it) of the Dirtiest Car in the Parking Lot contest with a Spongetech prize package.

Get to the game early to get a good spot in the parking lot.  The first 2,500 fans will also receive the giveaway of the year – a Cyclone Roller Coaster Replica, presented by bank of America.

I’ve had a peak at the Cyclones’ promotional schedule, and I’m sorry to say for the 8th year running, they’ve rejected my plea for a Von LMO bobblehead night.

    I was lucky enough to see this in person. He presented a prize package of sponges and wax (I think) to someone onfield between innings while the announcer pretended to be flabbergasted (“Is it..? Wait… can it be?! Is that… the REAL… Darryl Strawberry?! Ladies and gentlemen…!!!”). Anyway: “Darryl enjoyed himself so much tonight, he’ll be returning to Keyspan on July 5 to sign free autographs!” See you at 4pm on the 5th, everyone.
