The New York Mets put a new Minor League team in Binghamton before the 1992 season. The Binghamton Mets went 79-59 in their inaugural season and won the Eastern League Championship. Due to a rebranding effort, the 2016 season would be the last year Binghamton's team would be known as the Mets. The Rumble Ponies took the field for the first time on the opening day of the 2017 season. A rumble pony is a wooden horse on a carousel, and since Binghamton boasts a large collection of antique rumble ponies that dates back to the 1800s, the name was a natural fit. After making the postseason in their first year under the new name, the Rumble Ponies have missed the playoffs each of the last two seasons but are chasing the franchise's fourth Eastern League title in 2020.
