FLIPPING OUT

On Sunday, August 17th, fans are invited to participate in a pre-game Card Flipping Tournament, presented by the Topps Baseball Card Company -- with a chance to square off in the finals against Brooklyn Dodger legend Carl Erskine!

The tournament will begin at 3:45pm on Sunday, on the back field at KeySpan Park (accessible via the boardwalk) prior to the Cyclones' 5pm game against the Tri-City Valley Cats.  Each participant will receive a pack of Topps baseball cards, and then FLIP OFF in a bracket-style format.  The winner will then take on 1955 World Series Champion Carl Erskine, who will be on hand to play the Nation Anthem on his harmonica, throw out the first pitch, and sign autographs.  In addition, the first 2,000 adults (21 and over) in attendance for Sunday's game will receive a free limited-edition collectible Carl Erskine bobblehead.

Rules are simple; from a standing position, the first player takes a card, holds it along his side and then, with a flip of the wrist, lets it drop to the ground. It lands, with the picture facing up (heads) or the stats facing up (tails). The second player then flips and tries to match the card. If they match (both heads or both tails), player #2 wins the cards, if they do not match, the cards goes to player #1.  A player is eliminated when he has no more cards to flip.

In order to enter the Card Flipping Tournament, you must have a ticket for the August 17th game. 

To register, please contact Patrick Toy at 718-382-2604 or pat@brooklyncyclones.com
