More than likely it will turn into more student housing 

Or an extension of Columbus Park.

One of the two I'm sure but not right away. They will have a Single A tenant for a year or two until they finally close shop.

When they get the single A team local politicians will claim they saved baseball in Binghamton.

Just watch.

I nominate the name “Incinerators” for whatever independent league team our politicians can scrape up.

The "Rumble Ponies" should go under just for having the dorkiest team name in sports history. Who the heck came up with that one?

A woman with a dream.

A dream of rumbling ponies.

BU should just buy the stadium instead of building one.

Totally Agree.  This makes sense so you know it won't happen.

below is the response the rumble ponies left a concerned citizen regarding their potential move on a Facebook post on the rumble ponies page 14hrs ago. 
 

“our  owner John Hughes has not heard anything official about the Mets AA affiliate being moved to Brooklyn, or leaving Binghamton in general.“

At least we'd get some good burgers '27! Wasn't there one in West Endicott corner of Main & 26? Could be that my memory is faulty 😋

I simply wonder if baseball as a sport isn't dying a slow death? Our local stadium attendance sure would point in that direction. Maybe just not exciting enough for today's programed thrill a minute video game society?

And to further that possibilty, when was the last time (pre pandemic) anyone passed a park and witnessed a non organizational or non sponsored simple game of pickup hardball? 

As a boomer, I can most certainly remember when it really was considered America's Pastime. Couldnt wait to get to the park every hot summer day. Everyone had a favorite team and knew all of the players & positions.  Also remember playing a game called "scrub" biding the time until enough players showed up to field two teams for a game...which usually happened.  The World Series and little transistor radios smuggled into school....time brings change..jest sayin.

No, the pictured field is an abandoned one in Nashville. Greer Stadium.

I've only been to that stadium twice for a sporting event.  The first was around a dozen years ago.

The second was last August. What I attended was three hours of commercials, briefly and occasionally interrupted by a baseball game.

Yes, I know they need advertising and sponsorship to help pay the bills.  But there is limit that, when reached and exceeded, becomes overkill. And like a hammer to the head, eventually you grow numb to it.

Every single second was sponsored by someone. But with the bad PA system, I couldn't always make out the ad, or the trivia question that was asked. Since there were so many ads, no one company stood out. It was like a giant queue of companies, and it was simply "Next, next, next, next, next . . . "

About the only thing not sponsored was the spitting and the crotch scratching.
