Feldman (NYDN): Binghamton Mets Double-A team to stay in town, change name

I’m going with Heroin Hubs.

“We’re thrilled to be keeping Double-A, New York Mets baseball here in the community but with a new name that everyone in Binghamton can call its own. The new name will bring in a new era that proudly represents a crown jewel of the community.”

The Binghamton Mets were bought after the 2015 season by Florida-based Main Street Baseball, but the sale was rejected by the Eastern League after the buyers announced that they wanted to move the team to Wilmington, Delaware, according to the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin.

Instead, the team was sold to Georgia-based Evans Street Baseball, who will keep the Mets in Binghamton.

On Opening Day, April 7, Binghamton will launch a “Name the Team” contest.

Submissions will be taken through April 25, at which point the top six names will be revealed.

Fans will then be able to vote on their pick for two weeks.

The new name will be unveiled in October.

I can’t see how these players will win this suit. Would any of our lawyers like to comment?
