Here’s a snapshot of the raffle ticket…
The Binghamton Baseball Booster Club, in its closest voting in the history of its Player of the Month Award, selected center fielder John Mora as the Player of the Month for June. Mora hit .313 for the month, while also hitting three home runs and knocking in nine runs. He edged out Tim Tebow, who hit .301 for the month of June, with one home run and eleven RBIs. Mora’s excellent outfield defense swung the close vote in his favor. Shelagh Goodrich, the Treasurer of the Binghamton Baseball Booster Club, presented John with his award in between games of the doubleheader against Portland on July 17th.
John Mora is all smiles as he receives his award. Shelagh’s grandson helped her present the award.
On July 16th and July 21st the Binghamton Baseball Booster Club will sponsor two more theme nights, where we provide discounted tickets for all fans and cheer on the Rumble Ponies! We have purchased a number of tickets in Section 105 so that we can all sit together and root on our Ponies. We are selling the tickets for $7; we also have custom “Let’s Rumble!” T-Shirts available for $10. We will also “bundle” a package that includes a ticket to that game, a T-shirt and a 2018 Membership for $20! So for anyone who may have been contemplating joining our Booster Club, now would be a great time!
The cheering section for the boosters was out in force on June 25th.
Tim Szczesny will be taking orders for your tickets and your T-shirts, along with new memberships. Please let Tim know at “email@example.com” the number of tickets and number of T-Shirts (along with sizes) you need. Tickets will be left at WILL CALL.
This event coincides with our next Membership Meeting! Thank you….and LET’S RUMBLE!
General Manager John “JB” Bayne (glasses on top of head) has served as a “body guard” of sorts for Tim Tebow throughout the year. Tebow has drawn a crowd wherever he has gone this year, but there’s no doubt that Binghamton loves its Rumble Ponies!
The Rumble Ponies beat the Trenton Thunder last night (June 25th), 10-1, behind the seven-inning shutout pitching of Scott Copeland and home-run hitting of Levi Michael and John Mora. It was the first NYSEG Stadium win since June 3rd. Maybe the boosters should have a rooting section and bring signs more often!
Booster Club member john Bernhardt holds tells the story as Scott Copeland caught a Thunder playing looking at a third strike!
One of the more popular cheers of the night was one fan calling out “I say RUMBLE” and having Section 105 respond with “RUMBLE”!
With the assorted props, “I SAY RUMBLE, YOU SAY PONIES” was a common chant of the Boosters. John, did you realize this was the first win at home since June 3rd? “No Place Like Home” has not been very kind to the Ponies!
Joining the boosters only costs $10.00 and allows you to attend monthly meetings where a Rumble Pony player is always a guest, as well as enjoy complimentary pizza and light refreshments. For more information about the Binghamton Baseball Booster Club, just send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This was a popular sign after Tebow hit a bases-clearing double off the left-center field wall in the third inning.
The BBBC T-Shirts are becoming a fashion stastement at NYSEG Stadium. At $10.00, the shirts are one of the best bargains in town!

Our next Membership Meeting is scheduled for Monday June 25th at
4:30 at the Party Deck at Rumbletown. Two items stand out: Please wear your blue Binghamton Baseball Booster Club T-shirts and plan on joining us in Section 105 after the meeting.
Tickets in Section 105 are $7 and can be purchased at our meeting. (If you have a season ticket, save your Season Ticket so it can be redeemed.)
What a Bargain! The front and back of our “Let’s Rumble!” T-shirts. We’ll have a cheering section for the Ponies the night of the 25th!
Second: We have quite a treat in store for all members at 4:30. Prior to a Rumble Ponies player speaking to us, we have Gary Kaschak – who grew in the Binghamton area – talk about his most recent book, My Name was Mickey Mantle. Mr. Kaschak has written four books and his most recent engages the reader on a journey from the sandlots in Binghamton to the grounds of the Baseball
Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.
His book has beem described as a coming-of-age story highlighting the naivety of youth and the realization that our bigger-than-life heroes may not heroes at all.
Mr Kaschak will have an inventory of his book with him for sale after he speaks to our group!
