Team History[edit]

The Binghamton Mets were formed in 1992. Late in 1990 the Williamsport Bills were sold, but they could not move for over a year while a stadium was being built with funding assistance from the parent New York Mets.

After the 2016 season, the team was re-branded the Binghamton Rumble Ponies, following a trend of re-naming minor league teams to disassociate them from the names of their parent teams.
