Tim Heiman to Step Down from Rumble Ponies Post

Binghamton Rumble Ponies

Following his final broadcast on May 1, Tim Heiman will step down from his position as the Binghamton Rumble Ponies (Class AA; Eastern League) Director of Broadcasting & Media Relations. After more than seven seasons as the team’s lead radio broadcaster, Heiman will transition to a mechanical engineering position in the Binghamton area with BAE Systems. He will continue to serve as play-by-play broadcaster for Binghamton University’s Division 1 sports programs.

Jacob Wilkins will assume Heiman’s role as Director of Broadcasting & Media Relations. Wilkins, a native of East Meadow, NY, becomes the tenth lead radio broadcaster in the franchise’s history. He has spent the last six years as a sports update anchor in New York City working for WFAN and Sirius XM and has broadcasted college baseball with LIU Brooklyn since 2016. Following his graduation from Penn State University in 2010, Wilkins spent two seasons in Minor League Baseball as a play-by-play broadcaster for the Hudson Valley Renegades (Short Season A; NY-Penn League).

Heiman joined the Binghamton Mets in 2011 as a Broadcast and Media Relations Assistant working with Matt McCabe. Following McCabe’s departure, he made his debut as the team’s lead radio broadcaster in 2012. Heiman provided the play-by-play for four postseason runs, including the B-Mets’ Eastern League championship in 2014. Ballpark Digest named him Minor League Baseball’s Broadcaster of the Year in September 2018. That same season, the Rumble Ponies recognized the Smithtown, NY native for calling his 1,000th game for the organization.
