BROOKLYN - Young baseball players learned tips and tricks from professionals at MCU Park in Coney Island.

The Brooklyn Cyclones held their annual youth baseball clinic on Monday.

The team opened the field to about 100 aspiring baseball players from around New York City.

The clinic gave kids a rare opportunity to learn the fundamentals of baseball from professional players.

Kids participated in base running, fielding, pitching and hitting drills. After the clinic, each kid was given tickets to watch Monday night's game at MCU Park.

Three more clinics will be held throughout the summer.
