9-11-01: An Unfathomable Tragedy, A Changed Nation, A Changed World

Cyclones Fall To The Evil Empire In Game One

While the bats were fast asleep last night, there were some pretty good pitching performances in the New York Penn League Division Series opener between the Staten Island Yankees and the Brooklyn Cyclones.
