Call it an inside-the-bark home run!

It was a dog day afternoon at MCU Park on Aug. 2, as Clones connoisseurs brought their canines to the stadium for the annual puppy party Bark in the Park.

Approximately 200 patrons and their pooches participated in a pre-game puppy parade around the park. Cyclones supporters let their leashed pets get a big lead off the bag as they ran the base paths together.

The pet fans then got to watch the game with their pups from the bleachers — known for the day as the Bow Wow Zone — while enjoying trained dogs performing tricks with Frisbees between innings.

The Cyclones and the Mayor’s Alliance for New York City’s Animals also arranged for pet adoption opportunities. Sean Casey Animal Rescue Shelter parked a van full of cats and dogs looking for a home outside the park, and some fans left the stadium with a new member of the family.
