“Pin-Up” of the Week: Brooklyn Cyclones 7/5/14 Celebrating 25 Years Of Nothing Pin

If this doesn’t scream pop-culture, I don’t know what will.  On 7/5/14, the Brooklyn Cyclones (Short-Season A affiliate of the New York Mets) celebrated the 25th anniversary of the show Seinfeld.  Attendees to the game received a Keith Hernandez “Magic Loogie” bobblehead.  In case you’ve never seen the show, Hernandez appeared in an episode or two in the winter of 1992.

In addition to the bobblehead, the Cyclones also produced this pin that could only be purchased during that specific game.  It features the Cyclones name designed to look like the Seinfeld logo.  The pin even contains the name “Vandelay Industries Park”.  The Cyclones actually play in MCU Park, but Vandelay Industries fits this pin well as it was the fictional company made up by George Costanza.

This pin makes a great addition to any baseball pin or Seinfeld collection.  Fans can find them for $20.00.

Last night I watched the State College Spikes (Pirates) take on the Brooklyn Cyclones (Mets).  The Spikes lost 6-3.  It was a pitching dual until the 6th inning when Brooklyn scored first.  The Pirates pitching prospect, Clay Holmes, pitched 5 scoreless innings.
