It’s three strikes and you’re out…unless you have a good lawyer.

The Brooklyn Bar Association (BBA) brought along 90 judges, lawyers and family members for its annual trip to watch a Brooklyn Cyclones game in Coney Island Wednesday night.

“We’re constantly working in a high stress environment so it’s nice to, if I’m allowed to say this, let our hair down and bring our friends and family together to celebrate Brooklyn, our respective occupations and our families,” said the bar association’s President Arthur L. Aidala.

It was the hottest night in two years, but that didn’t scare anybody away from this trip to the beach. Aidala said that the event has gotten so popular that it was overbooked by 15 people and they had to scatter to find extra tickets.

“We don’t get a chance to bring our families to a lot of events so this one is special,” Aidala said. “It’s three things — it’s Brooklyn, which is great, it’s our families, and our friendship and mutual respect. We get a chance to take a little time out of our crazy life to get together.”

The BBA got to see an exciting game as the Cyclones held on to beat the Hudson Valley Renegades 6-3 behind a strong pitching performance by Kevin Canelon and a pair of homers off the bats of Tucker Tharp and Jeff Diehl. The win gave the Cyclones (20-17) sole possession of first place in the McNamara Division of the New York-Penn League.
