It is less then a month away, the beginning of baseball season in the Southern Tier. The Double-A affiliate of the New York Mets have a new name, a new looking stadium and a new mascot.  We met him for the very first time at Parade Day in early March and the horse needs a new name.

They asked you the fan to help and you responded with over 1,000 submissions. They've narrowed the list down to five finalists:

Bing, Buster, Ross, Rowdy, Rumbleton.

You have until April 3rd to vote so go here now.

The name will be announced at the Meet the Ponies Dinner at the Holiday Inn Downtown Binghamton on Tuesday, April 4th. You can still get tickets to the event by stopping at the NYSEG Stadium box office or call 607-722-FUNN (3866).

The Rumble Ponies have their home opener at NYSEG Stadium on April 13th against Erie, so let's get ready to rumble with the ponies.
