Fans filled MCU Park for the Brooklyn Cyclone's home-opener against the Staten Island Yankees.
Brooklyn supporters were rewarded with some nice weather and a team that came out strong.
"They're hitting the ball, they're doing the right thing, you know. Hopefully they'll keep it up all year and we might make it to the playoffs," said one fan.
"They're doing really good this year. I hope they keep it up," said another.
In the end the home team topped Staten Island 8-1.
The Yankees get a chance for redemption Sunday when the cross-borough rivals play again this afternoon on Staten Island.
