The Binghamton Rumble Ponies have just sent out a press release saying that Binghamton has been awarded the 2020 Eastern League All-Star Game. Even though it is three seasons away I for one am looking forward to it. With all the improvements made at NYSEG Stadium it will be the perfect place to host the All-Star game.

I think back to when the AHL gave Binghamton the All-Star Game and all the stars of the AHL, some of them now stars of the NHL, descended on Binghamton for the skills competition the night before, and then the All-Star Game the next day. Both of vents were awesome and great to see in person and up close and up-close-and-personal.

Congratulations to John Hughes owner of the Binghamton Rumble Ponies and his staff for landing this great event.

Binghamton hosted the double-a All-Star Game back in 1994 but it has never hosted the Eastern League All-Star Game.
