Binghamton Baseball Fan Leaves Large Donation to NYSEG Stadium
The Binghamton Rumble Ponies have done so much for the community especially off the field. You can call this good karma or maybe it's an answer to prayer but either way, this is an incredible story.
Marion O'Connor has been a longtime fan of Binghamton baseball and she attended many games at NYSEG Stadium with her brother, William O'Connor. Marion passed away in December 2016 at the age of 72.
Here is where we find out what kind of woman that Marion is. Her estate donated $195,159 in her honor to NYSEG Stadium for improvements. In her will, she requested that the money be used for maintenance, repairs, general expense, and special projects.
The Binghamton Rumble Ponies have decided to use the money to upgrade the stadium's concession areas and kitchen equipment. They are also going to have a "Big Brother/Big Sister Day" at NYSEG Stadium next season in O'Connor's honor.
It'll be a on-line contest, where you'll tell the Ponies why it's great to bring your Big Brother/Big Sister to the stadium. The winner will get two VIP tickets and throw out the first pitch. If you're the winner and want some advice on how to throw out the pitch, get a hold of me at the station.
Thank you Marion. I may not have known you in life but in death, we all know what kind of heart you had for the community.
