Brian Bannister Cyclones Bobblehead
Brian Bannister became the first Brooklyn Cyclones pitcher to make his MLB debut with the Mets. After three strong seasons with New York’s minor league affiliate club, Bannister started as a Met against the Washington Nationals on April 5, 2006. He earned his first win in his next appearance on April 11, holding the Nationals to 3 hits in the 7-1 Mets victory on the road. That September, the Cyclones honored the rising star with this bobblehead and by retiring his no. 19.
