The introduction of the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Class AA; Eastern League) continues, as the club revealed its new uniforms on Wednesday night.
In November, the Binghamton Mets announced that they would become the Rumble Ponies, unveiling a new logo in the process. The uniform announcement included the unveiling of four new jerseys that will be worn next season.
“As we continue to fulfill our commitment to the community and forge an identity, we can all be proud of this exciting time in our continuous growth,” said Rumble Ponies president John Hughes.
Hughes added, “At home, our uniforms will reflect the strength and passion of our name. On the road, we will proudly display Binghamton across the front of our jersey with a bold ‘B’ on our hats. Everyone will know where we are from and that we are proud of it. Special occasions require a uniform worthy of not only Binghamton and the Southern Tier, but the great state of New York which necessitated our alternate jersey. During batting practice our team will show we mean business. I am looking forward to Opening day and an entire season of FUNN.”
The home jersey is white with “Rumble Ponies” across the chest in jersey lettering with numbers in scarlet with a glitter silver outline. The numbers on the back are in scarlet red with a glitter silver trim. There is blue piping on the torso and sleeves with a road “B” logo on the left sleeve. Players will have their last names on the back of the jersey.

Batting Practice Jersey

Rebranding is not the only major development in Binghamton this offseason, as the club has also announced plans for $2.5 million in upgrades to NYSEG Stadium that will be complete for the 2017 season.
