The texts began on Monday when it was announced by the New York Mets that their All Star pitcher Max Scherzer would be pitching a rehab start in Binghamton for their Double-A affiliate, the Rumble Ponies. My Mets fans friends were taking an interest poll of making the two-hour journey. Due to work obligations I, along with my friends, were out. Then came the text on Tuesday from my 21 year-old son a little after 5pm. "I won't be home for dinner." I had little doubt of where he was going.
It's not too often that a guy making $43 million per year pitches in Upstate New York but thanks to the Syracuse Mets and the Binghamton Rumble Ponies we have that opportunity at times. Tuesday is one of those occasions and Mirabito Stadium in Binghamton should be rumbling with excitement. As of 7:30am there are still good tickets available!
If your social media feed is anything like mine, then, you've been seeing ads for the upcoming Luma Festival everywhere. It looked pretty cool based on the video so I decided to do a bit more research on it.
