2006_08_sladiescyclones.jpg - Sunday at Keyspan Park, baseball loving ladies can participate in the Ladies Clinic the Cyclones are holding from 9 a.m. - noon. The players themselves will be conducting personal and group instruction on baseball fundamentals like hitting, pitching, and fielding. For $35, participants will get a t-shirt, lunch, and two tickets to the game later that evening. While registration ended on 7/31, there are still spaces available.

- Thrillist reminds us that FC Barcelona is in town next Saturday to play an exhibition match against the lowly New York Red Bulls. Of course, any die hard soccer fan already has their tickets, but for those that were turned onto the world's most popular sport by the World Cup, there are still tickets available. You'll have to squint from your 300 level seats, but the view shouldn't be too bad. Just don't expect to see the stars from Barcelona, like two-time FIFA World Player of the Year Ronaldinho, playing the whole match.
