Also, after the game, is it easy to grab a cab outside the Coliseum? Or do we have to call one/reserve one to make it back to one of the train stations?

Thanks for any help you can provide!
Train is exactly as you said. You may have to change at Jamaica, if so, the ticket taker will tell you, and the train will be waiting right across the platform. Cab from there.

To catch a cab going back to NYC, walk to the Marriott hotel across from the main entrance of the NVMC, a slew of cabs wait at the front door after every game. More trains go back to NYC from Mineola or Westbury than Hempstead.
