The Cyclones have packed their summer schedule with promotions in tune with Coney’s honky-tonk heritage. Here are our favorites:

• This Sunday, June 21, check out the “Bellies and Baseball” event, at which the team will invite pregnant women to get their unborn children hooked on baseball. There will be a “Craving Station,” featuring pickles and anchovies, and a pre-game Lamaze class. Any mother who promises to name her child “Brooklyn” or “Cy” gets a season ticket for life.

• On June 23, the “Baracklyn Cyclones” will take the field in jerseys inspired by The Brooklyn Paper’s historic election-week headline. The first 2,500 fans through Keyspan’s turnstiles will receive Barack Obama bobbleheads, featuring the 44th president wearing a No. 44 Cyclones jersey. There will be “universal health care” (free Band-Aids), and any plumber named Joe will get a free ticket (plus one for a friend to, naturally, “spread the wealth”).

“We’re saving four seats for the president behind home plate,” said Cohen, who really did invite the president, though he has not heard back.

• The Cyclones will be hard-pressed to top the unlikely combination of promotions scheduled for an Aug. 3 showdown with Hudson Valley. Not only is Met legend Darryl Strawberry scheduled to be on hand, but it’s also Medieval Times Night, which features a jousting demonstration.
