Binghamton Mets Change Team Name To Rumble Ponies

This happened Novemeber 3rd; not sure why it wasn’t already posted. Embarrassment?

The winning name submission came from Nicole, of Binghamton. Her inspiration for Rumble Ponies came from “The Carousel,” a children’s book written by Binghamton University professor Liz Rosenberg about carousel horses that sleep in the winter, but come to life in the spring. Nicole was awarded season tickets for life and the first home jersey produced for winning the Name the Team Contest.

The losing finalists were: Bullheads, Gobblers, Rocking Horses, Stud Muffins & Timber Jockeys.

Planning the ultimate 30-way trade. Who says no?

Real baseball returns tomorrow.

Full disclaimer: I know this is stupid. Yep I know. This is just for fun. Yes I discriminated and undervalued your player intentionally because I hate your team specifically.
