Hundreds Remember Jingles

Hundreds of friends, sports fans and family members attended a dinner in memory of Michael “Jingles” Rubino on Saturday.  Rubino known by many as “Jingles” entertained fans at Binghamton Mets games since their inception in 1992.  His dancing to The Tarantella during the seventh inning stretch became legendary.

“Jingles” who got his nickname in his youth for always having a couple of coins in his pocket that would make noise and jingle when he ran, was also an umpire who worked hundreds of youth baseball and area softball games.  Although best known for his years at NYSEG Stadium watching Binghamton Mets games he would often be seen at area high school games and other athletic events.

The tribute was held at American Legion Post 80 on Main Street in Binghamton.  Various raffles were held to help defray funeral costs for the Rubino family.  Dozens of volunteers helped with the dinner while numerous businesses contributed prizes and gift baskets to be given away.
