Today is a special day. It's my birthday along with my daughter Tara, my sister Michelle and my Uncle Dale.

Today is also special because after 25 years, the Binghamton Mets are getting a new name. The Double-A Mets are staying in town but they are changing their name, logo and color scheme

Over 1,500 entries were submitted and it was cut down to the final six. Here's a reminder of what they were.

Binghamton Bullheads, Binghamton Gobblers, Binghamton Rocking Horses, Binghamton Rumble Ponies, Binghamton Stud Muffins, Binghamton Timber Jockeys.

The new name is: Binghamton Rumble Ponies.

The announcement was made at the Benjamin Franklin Elementary School.

The team's home opener will be on April 13th. Go here to find out the latest info with the Rumble Ponies.

They even have a new phone number it's, (607) 722-FUNN (3866). Let me be the first to say "LET'S GO RUMBLE PONIES."
