In honor of the Fourth of July, the Cyclones wore a special cap with a patriotic twist. The caps were made with navy cloth, red bills, and Clones logos featuring red, white, and blue stars. Cyclones mascot Sandy donned starred and striped pants for the occasion.
During the Fourth of July pre–game ceremonies, the Clones unveiled a seat of honor in recognition of the 80,000 soldiers who are missing in action or prisoners of war.
This Independence Day marked the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s famous “Luckiest Man” speech, the retirement speech Gehrig made at Yankee Stadium as he was dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, now known as Lou Gehrig’s disease. To honor the anniversary, several Mini-Mets players recorded a video of them reciting lines from the speech, first baseman Michael Katz among them. The video played before the game.
