Mets fans don’t need to travel far to enjoy great minor league baseball. Since 2001, the Brooklyn Cyclones have been the Short-Season A affiliate, producing Mets players such as Michael Conforto, Rob Gsellman and Brandon Nimmo. This bobblehead depicts Sandy the Seagull, the Cyclones mascot, who gives a nod to the seashore and the borough’s larger baseball history. Brooklyn native and Hall of Fame pitcher Sandy Koufax came up with the Brooklyn Dodgers in the 1950s.
