SCHUMER STATEMENT ON THE NEW YORK METS’ DECISION TO KEEP THE RUMBLE PONIES IN BINGHAMTON

Following his relentless advocacy and a visit directly to NYSEG Stadium this year, Schumer released the following statement regarding the New York Met’s intention to keep their affiliated minor league franchise in Binghamton, NY:

Senator Schumer said, “After over a year of advocating to preserve the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, and working directly with the Mets and Major League Baseball (MLB) to ensure that MLB affiliated minor league baseball continues to be played in the Southern Tier, today is a monumental step in the right direction and nothing short of a homerun for the Mets, Rumble Ponies, and baseball fans throughout the region. The Rumble Ponies have done a tremendous job weaving themselves into the very fabric of Binghamton. That rich history will be unbroken and the love for the game can continue to be discovered and nurtured right here in the Carousel Capital. I have and will continue to work closely with the Mets, including their new owner Mr. Cohen, all local leaders and stakeholders to step up to the plate and ensure a successful season of our national pastime in Binghamton.”
