2010 Brooklyn Cyclones Adam Kolarek
Who is this? Brooklyn Cyclones pitcher Adam Kolarek
What is this? An autographed card from the 2010 Brooklyn Cyclones team set
Where'd I get it? Kolarek signed it for me before the Cyclones' final regular season game last Sunday.
How much did it cost? The team set cost $10.
Why is this so special? The Brooklyn Cyclones finished the 2010 season with the best record in the NY-Penn League and are playing the Jamestown Jammers in the first round of the playoffs. Tonight, the two teams are playing the deciding game to determine who advances to the championship series this weekend. I'm planning to post a card signed by a member of the 2010 Cyclones team each night this week.
The Mets selected Kolarek in the 11th round of this year's draft. He spent the season with Kingsport and Brooklyn, posting a combined 2-1 record with a 3.13 ERA in 22 relief appearances. He struck out 45 in 37 1/3 innings.
Kolarek has simplified his autograph to include just a few letters, but it is easily recognizable.
