On June 23rd, the Brooklyn Cyclones were transformed into the Baracklyn Cyclones, honoring the 44th President of the United States with a night of patriotic partying at the ballpark.

The team wore alternate red, white and blue jersey’s and the first 2,500 fans in attendance got a Barack Obama bobblehead.

The team cleverly offered an “Economic Stimulus Package” which sold discounted tickets and provided “Universal Health Care” (free Band-Aids for the first 1,000 fans).

Of course there was a “Joe The Plumber Special” as well where any plumber named Joe got two free tickets – one for himself, and one to “spread the wealth” with a friend.

Finally, there was the “Bi-Partisan Consolation Prize” as anyone named McCain or Palin recieved a free seat. Not one of the better ones, mind you, but one out in the outfield bleachers.

Those minor league baseball marketing folks, they’re clever.
