BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — Labor Day may have been the last Rumble Ponies game of the season, but the team says it has plenty to look forward to coming up.
Even before this year’s season started, there were several major upgrades to NYSEG stadium. The scoreboard was brand new and able to display video in high definition for the first time, and each one of the six thousand seats was replaced and cupholders were added as well.
The Rumble Ponies say after a successful end to this year, they’re already ready to move on to the next one.
“We’re just excited to be a part of the community, and we’ll have the mascot out at various functions throughout the year,” said John Bayne, the managing director of the team. “The community got behind us for the Bing at Home campaign for the 2020 All-Star game; we’ll count on them to continue that and bring us into next year.”
The highlight of next year is the 2020 Eastern League All-Star Game, which will be hosted in Rumbletown from July 13-15. Fans said although they were sad to see the season end, baseball would always be a part of their life.
“The reason I’m a fan of baseball is because I came to Rumble Pony, or B Met games back in the day, and just became a fan of baseball that way,” said Alex Stento, who lives in New Milford, Pa. but grew up in Binghamton.
Season tickets for 2020 are already on sale, with all-star game tickets expected to be available beginning in October.
