Mets minor league affiliate changes its name to Rumble Ponies
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — The Double-A franchise of the New York Mets has a new nickname, the Rumble Ponies.
Fans made the choice in a vote, and results were released Thursday at an elementary school in Binghamton. Rumble Ponies topped five other nicknames in the running: Bullheads, Gobblers, Stud Muffins, Timber Jockeys and Rocking Horses.
The franchise shared the nickname of the parent club since moving to Binghamton in 1992.
