The Cyclones have truly become the Chosen people.

At least, that’s what it’ll look like on July 13, when the team becomes the first pro squad in America to don Hebrew uniforms as part of the annual Jewish Heritage Night celebrations.

Infielder Josh Satin modeled the right-to-left uniforms for the media the other day and pronounced them poifect.

In Hebrew, the uniforms read, “Tzyklons.” They even have the player’s number rendered in the language of the Torah.

“They’re nice, light and comfortable and I thought, ‘I can’t wait to wear them in a game,’” said Satin, whose Hebrew isn’t what it once was.

The good news? If the uniforms don’t fit, don’t worry — ve’ll take ’em in!

The first 2,500 fans — of any ethnic background! — will receive a replica Cyclones uniform (in English).

Ironically, the very next night at Keyspan, the Cyclones will host a “Salute to the Pork Rind.” Pork, you may recall, ain’t Kosher.— with Ed Shakespeare
