Honoring the 44th President Baseball Style

An article by posted on January 11, 2009

In just one week our country will have a new leader. Barack Obama will become the 44th President of the United States.

This summer the Mets Class A minor league team, the Brooklyn Cyclones, will honor Barack Obama. On June 23rd the Cyclones will be known as the Baracklyn Cyclones and will sport specially designed red, white and blue jerseys.

The first 2,500 fans will receive free Barack Obama bobbleheads while the first 1,000 will receive free band aids in honor of universal health care.

And remember Joe the Plumber? Well any plumber named Joe (with ID and business card) who wants to attend the game will get 2 free tickets. And if by chance your name is Barack you will attend the game absolutely free.

The special Baracklyn Cyclones jerseys will be auctioned off and proceeds will go to the Jackie Robinson foundation.
