Some people talk about saving the environment, but this Saturday, the Brooklyn Cyclones will do their part just by putting on their uniforms.

As part of a “green” promotion with National Grid, the Cyclones will don home uniforms made from bamboo.

We know what you’re thinking: This team has been so stiff over the last week that the last thing it needs is uniforms made out of wood. But don’t worry, said Cyclone spokesman Jason Solomon: “They’re made from bamboo fibers, not the bamboo reeds themselves. They’re flexible and comfortable.”

To end the ribbing, Solomon also sent over information that explained that the “re-Cyclones” would be wearing cloth comprised of “30 percent organic cotton to give stability, beautiful softness and perfect printabili­ty.”

Further, “fabric woven from bamboo yarn is light, almost translucent, and softer than cotton. It has a natural quality that feels like silk, but has the advantage of being machine-washable.”

And most important, perhaps, was this tidbit: “It is naturally anti-bacterial and will not hold odor.”

Not that the Cyclones have a hygiene problem, but boy, did they stink last week!
