New York Elite Baseball League newcomers the Sherman Cyclones are gearing up for the summer season.

Playing against teams from Danbury, Carmel and the Bronx, N.Y., and throughout the Greater Hudson Valley, the Cyclones anticipate a tough 18-game run to reach the first division and playoffs.

Gina Romano, general manager, said the Cyclones are a team for kids who like the camaraderie and competition baseball provides.

“We want to offer an opportunity for kids who want to continue playing the game they love. Anyone 18 or under looking for a local baseball home should look us up,” she said. Players from all area towns are eligible.
