Games of Professional Baseball in New York doesn't just mean watching the Yankees play and paying 100s of dollars: watch a Class A game for much cheaper!

You can spend hundreds of dollars to watch the Yankees or the Mets play baseball.

But if the game is more important to you than the players who play it, you can invest in your own time by watching the future stars play, and you can do that for around $25—sometimes only $10—per ticket in Brooklyn. For games like these, where you sit is just not that important.

The Cyclones are a Class A farm team for the New York Mets. To get to their stadium—right on the Atlantic Ocean—any Coney Island subway train will do. The league that includes the Cyclones is the Pennsylvania League (‘Penn League’) playing a ‘short’ season from mid-April to early September.

Maimonides Park is fairly new amongst the building of MLB (pro baseball’s governing organization) stadia and the views from it excite: beyond the Cyclones’ fence is the 1930s Amusement Park’s Parachute Drop, far away from the foreground gateway statue (pictured) capturing that illustrious moment when, by shaking Jackie Robinson’s hand, Pee Wee Reese—the Brooklyn Dodgers’ shortstop—demonstrated to all who followed baseball that integration within the major leagues had begun.

Maimonides Park concession stands are infamous for supplying fans with classic American prepared junk food (I’m thinking of nachos and pizza), dolled up to present as something benign. And beer.

That, combined with the inning interval entertainers (including one who dresses as a UPS Delivery driver), make baseball events here as important and necessary to American culture as driving Route 66.
