Brooklyn Cyclones Bark in the Park
2014 Game Called Due to Rain
We're as bummed as you are that the 2014 Bark in the Park game between the Brooklyn Cyclones and Lowell Spinners was rained out. If you purchased tickets, you can exchange them for any Cyclones home game (to attend without your dog) before August 12, 2015. If you're willing to wait until next year, the Cyclones are trying to schedule next year's Bark in the Park earlier in the summer so 2014 ticket holders can exchange their tickets to take their pooches to the 2015 dog-friendly game. We'll announce the 2015 Bark in the Park date as soon as it is determined.
It's not every day you can take your dog to a ballgame. 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.
