This year, professional baseball will celebrate its 30th year in Binghamton. It kicks off on Wednesday, April 6th with the "Meet the Binghamton Rumble Ponies" Dinner. After a two-year absence, it returns to the DoubleTree Hilton Hotel in Binghamton.
It promises to be an exciting year with new manager, Reid Brignac, and new owners, David and Karen Sobotka leading the way. On the field, the Rumble Ponies will have the top three prospects in the New York Mets system, according to mlb.com.
