Fans of the Binghamton Mets and Syracuse Athletics will get a treat at NYSEG Stadium tonight.  Long-time basketball coach Jim Boeheim, new football coach Dino Babers and Syracuse alum and NFL Hall of Famer Floyd Little will be on hand to greet fans and talk SU sports. Boeheim and Babers are expected to throw ceremonial first pitches prior to the game.

Jim Boeheim's men's basketball team advanced to the NCAA quarterfinal round this spring.  Many consider the past season to be the best coaching job done by Boeheim in his career.  The Orange were in doubt of getting an NCAA bid and then went on to the Final Four.

Dino Babers enters his first season as Head Football Coach at Syracuse.  He spent the past two seasons at Bowling Green where his team posted a 10-3 record last year.

Also expected to be in attendance is one of Syracuse University's greatest running backs.  Floyd Little was a three-time All-American running back at Syracuse and went on to a Hall of Fame career with the NFL's Denver Broncos.
