With a 1.50 ERA in four starts this season, Cyclones pitcher Eric Niesen has made a successful transition to starting in pro ball after relieving in college.

Now if he could just translate that success into the subway.

“This is a change of pace where I come from,” said Niesen, a Michigan-native who played his college ball at Wake Forest in North Carolina. “The subways are crazy here, but I’m trying my best to adjust.”

Not even playing ball for a summer in the Cape Cod league in Massachusetts last year could prepare the 21-year old for his time getting around Brooklyn this season.

“I’ve experienced some crazy stuff on the train in Boston last year coming back from a Red Sox game,” said Niesen. “I was pressed up against the window the whole ride. It’s always like that here.”
