The Brooklyn Eagle reports a few changes over at MCU Park where the Brooklyn Cyclones play. First, they have a “brand-new, state-of-the-art playing surface after the salt, chemicals and other pollutants caused by the ocean water left the previously lush green grass surface contaminated and unplayable.”

In addition, for six games, $3 from each each ticket will go to help a local charity helping to recover from Sandy. The Schedule:

Monday, July 1 – Coney Island Night to benefit
Monday, July 8 – Gerritsen Beach / Sheepshead Bay Night to benefit Gerritsen Cares.
Monday, July 22 – Nassau County Night to benefit the Nassau Hurricane Recovery Fund.
Monday, July 29 – Red Hook Night to benefit the Red Hook Initiative.
Monday, Aug. 19 – Staten Island Night to benefit The Stephen Siller Foundation.
Monday, Aug. 26 – Breezy Point / Rockaway Night to benefit The Graybeards.
