Rumble Ponies home opener to be showcased in popular documentary series

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - A new era of Binghamton baseball will be showcased on the "worldwide" stage.

A nationally acclaimed sports film crew will be at Thursday's Binghamton Rumble Ponies home opener to capture the culmination of the team's re-brand.

Thursday night's events begin at 5:15 p.m. with a ribbon cutting, and gates will open at 5:30 for fans to enter Rumble Town.

Improvements are all set to go including a new bullpen, LED lighting, picnic tables along the left field line, a right field fun zone and a new 144-person party deck.

Owner John Hughes says fans need to come out in full force to showcase America's pastime in the Parlor City.

"I think it's important for everyone to understand that this the opening day that wasn't supposed to be. I'd like for the fans to come out tonight and show the world that Binghamton cares about baseball and we want it here," said Hughes.

Hughes says Thursday's game is the culmination of the documentary, detailing whether or not the changes worked to bring in more fans. 

The game begins at 6:35 p.m. and the first 1,000 fans will receive an inaugural season baseball.

Fireworks will launch right after the game.

The Rumble Ponies homestand continues through the weekend with a team autograph session Friday and Easter at the Park on Saturday.
