“We consider our affiliation with the New York Mets the crown jewel of our assets,” said B-Mets president Michael Urda. “Fans can rest assured that the Binghamton Mets and New York Mets will be linked for the next six years.”
“We are excited to continue our long-standing partnership with the Binghamton Mets, a partnership that works well for both our players and our fans,” said VP of Player Development and Amateur Scouting Paul DePodesta. “Mike Urda and his staff are first class, and we hope to continue to provide them and all B-Mets fans with winning baseball.”
Urda continued, “The Mets love their affiliation in Binghamton. As the team’s affiliate of the year last season, we take pride in treating every Mets player, manager, coach and visiting member of the front office like family.”
The new PDC extends the old one slated to expire in 2016.
The future of the team in Binghamton is in play; last week Main Street Baseball asked a U.S. district court to prevent the sale of the team to a local group and instead enforce a contract with the B-Mets. Main Street Baseball would then move the team to Wilmington, Del.
