Last week, the Brooklyn Cyclones officially named their 2014 manager and coaching staff. Yesterday, the Brooklyn Eagle published a profile of the team’s new skipper, Tom Gamboa.
Former Pittsburgh Pirate Benny Diestefano begins a second stint as the Cyclones’ hitting coach, while Tom Signore joins Brooklyn as the team’s pitching coach after serving in that role for three seasons with the Double-A New Hampshire Fisher Cats in the Toronto Blue Jays organization.
The Cyclones also unveiled the jersey designs for their popular “Jersday Thursday” promotion. My favorite is the “Brooklyn Bridge” jersey that will be given away to the first 3,000 fans at the August 21st game between the Cyclones and Staten Island Yankees. (I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to make it, unfortunately.) You can check out the other designs on the team’s website.
