SO LITTLE TIME WITH SO MUCH TO DO

SO LITTLE TIME WITH SO MUCH TO DO

After returning to Brooklyn at 5 A.M following a three-game series in Batavia, the Cyclones got to take off their jerseys and enjoy a rare baseball-free day.

On their first off day of the season, the players took advantage of sleeping in late and relaxing before setting out to explore the city.

Catcher Dan Rizzie was able to spend his day with buddies from high school that were in town visiting, hitting some of the most popular tourist attractions in the Big Apple.

“We went down to Central Park and Rockefeller Center, and also stopped by Ground Zero,” Rizzie said. “It was nice to wake up not having a regimented schedule and just hanging out and chilling for the day.”

Being on the Cyclones roster brought Colombia native Nabil Crismatt to New York for the very first time, so taking the day to venture around the concrete jungle with teammates Joel Huertas, Ali Sanchez and Hengelbert Rojas was a whole different ballgame.

“For my first day going out in the city, half of it was trying to figure out where you are,” said Crissmatt, “ But we went to the Empire State building and walked around Manhattan. New York is a really nice place.”

Although Huertas had been to New York before, it still doesn’t come close being like anything in his hometown of Dorado, Puerto Rico, so embarking on new adventures in NYC is something he is always willing to take advantage of.

“I enjoyed the off day with my teammates. We had a good time in the city, It was my first time taking a subway and it was awesome,” Huertas said. “It's something that we don't have in Puerto Rico, there’s always something different to see or do and going to the museum at Ground Zero was definitely something that I’ll never forget.”

Blake Tiberi spent his time a little closer to Cyclone grounds since he didn’t think the weather was going to be in his favor, but the Kentucky born third baseman plans on sight seeing in the city when his father comes to visit in a few weeks, since he had never been to New York before become a Cyclone either.

“ I thought it was going to rain so I walked around Coney Island and checked it out,” Tiberi said. “We don’t usually get much of a chance to check out the boardwalk or walk on the beach on game days. It’s all business.”

Now feeling a little more relaxed and a little more familiar with the great landmarks New York has to offer, they will now return to the field and prepare to take on the Hudson Valley Renegades for a three game series at MCU.

“ We had about twenty games one after another,” Tiberi said. “And sometimes you get so caught up in the game that it’s nice to take your mind out of it for a day and unwind so you can come back the day after feeling refreshed.”
