(prx.org) - Last fall, after the last pitch was thrown, after the last ball was caught, after the lights shut off, Keyspan Park went silent for the winter.
The home of the the Brooklyn Cyclones minor league baseball team, the stadium looks from the edge of Coney Island in South Brooklyn, beyond right field to the Atlantic. The ballclub's namesake, the Cyclone roller coaster, is visible on the other side of the left field wall.
The players packed up and the fans went home at the end of the post-season in September. But a couple of guys still come out during the lonely and empty months, even when the field has patches of snow across it. These are the groundskeepers.

Listen to Cyrus Farivar's story from Keyspan Park.
