Welcome to Brooklyn!
The Cyclones added another second baseman to their roster on Friday afternoon. Twenty-two year old, Willam Fulmer joins the Cyclones from the Gulf Coast League Mets and will wear number 23. While with the Gulf Coast League, Fulmer batted .333 in four games.
Friday night’s game against the hated Staten Island Yankees was Girl Scout Sleepover Night. Girl Scout troops from the surrounding area took part in the parade around the field before the game as well as the national anthem. A reporter saw tons of Girl Scouts, but no cookies, unfortunately.
Ks all around
Friday night’s starting pitcher Marcos Molina struck out a career-high eight batters through six complete innings. These eight strikeouts are also a team high for the season. Molina only allowed two hits during his start.
Half of the biggest bromance in Brooklyn, third baseman Jhoan Urena currently has a eight-game hitting streak. And his best bud Amed Rosario has been having success at the plate lately as well, hitting safely in each of his last six games.
The sound guys at MCU Park are having a lot of fun with Michael Katz’s name. Each time the first baseman gets a hit, they respond with either the Meow Mix jingle or a picture of him surrounded by — you guessed it — furry felines. Katz snapped a 0-for-24 slump during Wednesday night’s game and continued that into Thursday.
Ole! Ole! Ole! Ole!
As part of their “Jersday Thursday” weekly promotion, the Cyclones took part in the World Cup fun by giving out soccer jerseys to the first 3,000 fans. The soccer team the New York Cosmos also participated in the festivities. Defender Hunter Gorskie kicked out one of the first pitches — with a soccer ball of course.
