You've heard the saying "that it's better to give then receive." The Binghamton Rumble Ponies just received $195K for improvements to NYSEG Stadium, courtesy of Marion O'Connors estate.

Now they are going to give $2,500 to Mirabito and The Mercy House of the Southern Tier. It comes from Minor League Baseball Charities and its connection to the Charles K. Murphy Patriot Award.

Earlier this year, Richard Tylicki, was honored with the award. He's the Rumble Ponies Director of Stadium Operations and a Lieutenant Colonel in the Pennsylvania Army National Guard.

By winning the Patriot Award, he could give $2,500 to any charity of his choice. Today at 2:30 pm, He along with Rumble Ponies Managing Director John “JB” Bayne will give Mirabito President Joe Mirabito and The Mercy House Executive Director Linda Cerra checks for $1,250.

The check presentation will take place at Mirabito’s headquarters in The Metrocenter in downtown Binghamton.

The Charles K. Murphy Patriot Award was created in 2016 to honor the longtime Florida State League president and U.S. Army veteran who passed away February 21st, 2015 at the age of 83.

Tylicki will begin his fifth deployment in January when he departs for Kuwait and will miss the Rumble Ponies’ 2018 season. Go here to see Tylicki's accomplishments. Congrats to Mirabito, The Mercy House and good luck to you Richard Tylicki.
