Driving by Binghamton's NYSEG stadium, my eye always catches the billboard with the countdown to the Binghamton Mets home opener.  The season opener is a game away with the first game to hit our Binghamton turf being April 11th. I've got my B-Mets sweatshirt and cap all ready.

B-Mets fans should note the popular "Welcome Back B-Mets Dinner," Tuesday April 2nd at the Binghamton Riverwalk Hotel & Conference Center in downtown Binghamton.

This fun event begins at 5:30pm and will feature players and mascots for the "Meet the Mets" autograph reception.  Dinner will be served promptly at 7pm, followed by a special baseball program with team and manager introductions.  The event will also feature live music by the Scott Freeman Band.

Tickets are a bargain for $20.00, with all proceeds benefiting the recently formed B-Mets Booster Club. Last year's event sold out rather quickly. Tickets are on sale now through the Binghamton Mets' box office or (607) 723-METS.

Here's to a winning season with the Binghamton Mets.  Go Mets!
