Sock Out Cancer Night With the Binghamton Rumble Ponies
If you haven't heard the news yet, Jim Weed has stepped down as the General Manager of the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. He's leaving on good terms but is doing what's best for him and his family.
But as they say, "The show must go on." Tonight the Binghamton Rumble Ponies are in action at NYSEG Stadium on "Sock Out Cancer" Night. In fact, today (6/6) has been declared "Sock Out Cancer" Day in Binghamton by Mayor Rich David.
Sock Out Cancer helps families who’ve been referred by caseworkers at Lourdes and UHS. The program helps ease the financial burden for families of those undergoing cancer care by helping to pay rent or offer mortgage assistance.
The program also helps with utility bills, gift cards for gas and grocery stores, and any other financial assistance that might be needed. So when you go to the game tonight, you are encouraged to wear these awesome socks or buy them there and help out this worthy cause.
Get there before the game to meet Al Downing who played for the Binghamton Triplets and the New York Yankees. He is famous for giving up Hank Aaron's record breaking 715th home run but I wouldn't bring that up. He'll be throwing out the first pitch.
It's also Tasty Tuesday where hot dogs are only $1 all night long. First pitch against the Richmond Flying Squirrels is 6:35.
