“Put a Seal On It” as Rumble Ponies Voice Calls Last Game
Tim Heiman has been the "Voice" of Binghamton baseball for the past eight seasons, starting with the Binghamton Mets and continuing with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies. He called his final Rumble Ponies game on News Radio 1290 WNBF last (Wednesday) night when Binghamton defeated the Akron RubberDucks 8-0 at NYSEG Stadium.
Heiman took over the lead play-by-play position when Matt McCabe departed to pursue a law degree. After calling over 1,000 Binghamton games he resigned his position with the Rumble Ponies to pursue an engineering career at BAE Systems in Endicott.
Tim will continue his broadcasting connection with Binghamton University. Binghamton and America East broadcast numerous games on ESPN3 and ESPN+. Tim does all home men's and women's basketball games on ESPN along with numerous other athletic contests.
Taking over for Tim is Jacob Wilkins who has been working with WFAN in New York City. He has also been broadcasting LIU Brooklyn baseball games. He joined Tim on last night's game broadcast and will be solo tonight (Thursday) for Binghamton's game in Portland. Air time is 5:45 on News Radio 1290 WNBF.
