Pressestimmen

"Osborne...actually lives in Brooklyn. This lends both weight and depth to his account of the Cyclones' birth, and a reality, rather than nostalgic sentimentalism, to his Brooklyn." --Nine"Osborne pens a highly readable and detailed account of the inaugural season of the Brooklyn Cyclnes minor league baseball team. There is much to like about this book."--VOYA "Osborne attempts to tell the story of professional baseball's successful return to Brooklyn through the juxtaposing of his personal experience with two main characters." --Park Slope Paper "A nice little book that gives an inside look at the big-time small-time where just about all games are sold out and the capital of the world looms in the background, but the game's still in the bushes." --Blue Ridge Business Journal "An entertaining tale." --Chicago Sun-Times "Though the 2001 season for the Cyclones now seems a decade away, under the watchful eye of Osborne, readers grasp it from several angles. The Brooklyn Cyclones is right on the money." --NYU Press "A happy-ending story to which all fans of minor league baseball or who live in communities that have lost a treasured franchise can relate." -- Library Journal "The account of the seasons games is handled deftly, and Osborne effectively captures the zeal of Brooklyn baseball fans." --Publishers Weekly "Osborne simultaneously captures baseball as a business, as a passion, and as a dream. That's a rare triple play, and it results in a thoroughly satisfying baseball book." --Booklist "Why should anyone outside New York care about the return of baseball to Brooklyn? Because of the long sad absence that preceded it." --Library Journal "The Brooklyn Cyclones is right on the money in spelling out baseball's decline among urban youth." --NY Press "The Dodgers will likely never return to Brooklyn, but The Brooklyn Cyclones makes it possible for the old-time fan to feel passionate again." --Jeff Pearlman, Newsday staff writer and author of The Bad Guys Won: A Season with the 1986 Mets "Here, thanks to a sparkling lineup of characters, vivid writing, and a veteran scout's eye for detail, a single season comes alive with far more than just wins and losses; with the power, politics, and people dead center in a book as much about hopes and dreams as it is about baseball." --Armen Keteyian, CBS and HBO Sports "Love Brooklyn or love baseball or love both, you are sure to love Ben Osborne's tale of the birth of the only team ever named after a roller coaster. The perfect off-season read; in season, the book will make you wonder what you are doing reading when you should be down at Keyspan Park, rooting for those Cyclones." --Michael Daly, New York Daily News columnist and author of Under Ground: A Novel "If there's more fun than attending a Cyclones' game, it's reading Ben Osborne's warm-hearted, historically observant take on Coney Island's new and very old pastime." --Rick Telander, author of Heaven Is a Playground "In this book, Osborne describes how, when the Cyclones returned to Brooklyn, they nestled their new stadium, Keyspan Park, in a section of the city that once served as a playground for the wealthy." --Ron Kaplan, Foreword Magazine
