Departing Clones tweet their regards to Brooklyn

Cyclones pinch runner Jonathan Clark scored on a walk given up by Crosscutter closer James Birmingham.

After suffering Monday’s spirit-crushing playoff loss to the Hudson Valley Renegades, Brooklyn’s boys of summer packed up their bags and headed back to their distant homes. But some teammates — being tech-savvy Generation Yers after all — couldn’t part the People’s Playground without tweeting a few heartfelt, and not so heartfelt, goodbyes to their team, MCU Park, and their fans.
