Mets’ decision to send Tebow to Rumbletown may lie partly in stadium renovations

Sports

Well in case you haven’t heard, which is hard to believe, Tim Tebow is coming to Binghamton.

The former star quarterback will be furthering his baseball career at the Double-A level and will be calling NYSEG Stadium home for the foreseeable future.

Over the past couple years, NYSEG Stadium has seen some major renovations, including the new batting cage facility and party deck down the right field line.

Binghamton’s Managing Director John “JB” Baynes believes that the facilities upgrades may have played a roll in the Mets decision to send Tebow to Rumbletown.

“Yeah, we did a lot of these renovations with the New York Mets, in coordination with them. I’m sure those had a factor in that. We’ve really put in the effort and the time to make this a premiere facility not only for fans, but also for the teams that come here,” said Baynes.

Tebow and the Rumble Ponies start their 2018 season next Thursday at NYSEG against the Portland Sea Dogs.
