Brooklyn Cyclones Bark in the Park
It's not every day you can take your dog to a ball game. But each summer, the Brooklyn Cyclones invite fans to bring their dogs to the annual Bark in the Park baseball game at MCU Park in Coney Island. Cyclones fans and their canine friends have the opportunity for an exciting "dog's day" of fun as the Cyclones take on another team.
Each year, the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals participates in Bark in the Park by presenting dog and cat adoptions from Alliance Participating Organizations and other crowd-pleasing activities, including great photo ops for the kids with Maddie, the six-foot Miniature Schnauzer mascot from Maddie's Fund. Fans also enjoy ballpark specials offered by the Cyclones.
