Daily News excerpt -

Call it the Coney Classic.

Mayor de Blasio and the City Council will face off in a softball game next Wednesday, taking over the Brooklyn Cyclones’ home stadium in Coney Island.

De Blasio laid down the challenge to Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito on Twitter early Wednesday, writing, “I challenge @NYCCouncil to a #NYCSoftball game. The date is set - 9/17. Your move, @MMViverito.”

Mark-Viverito quickly accepted the challenge, tweeting, “You're on! Dust off your glove and name the place.”

De Blasio and his staffers will play Mark-Viverito, Council members and staff at MCU Park, where the minor league Mets affiliate Cyclones play their home games.
