Rain Does It Again As Rumble Ponies Washed Out
Rain and inclement weather continue the almost incessant pounding of the Northeast and the Southern Tier continues to get more than our share. The Binghamton Rumble Ponies were forced to postpone their Sunday game at NYSEG Stadium against the Portland Sea Dogs due to inclement weather. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on Saturday, June 1 beginning at 5:35 P.M.
Binghamton's homestand continues Monday night with the first of three straight games against the Akron RubberDucks. Akron visits NYSEG Stadium Monday through Wednesday night with the starting time each night scheduled for 6:35 and air on News Radio 1290 WNBF at 6:20 P.M.
Baseball fans pay lots of interest to figures and numbers. Batting averages, earned run averages and won-lost percentages are prominent among discussion topics for baseball fans. Here is another one for you. The Rumble Ponies record is 10-7. This includes two doubleheaders that have been played. Binghamton has has 27 scheduled dates so far as of April 28.
The Rumble Ponies have had ten rain outs and one suspension....so eleven of the 27 dates have been decided by inclement weather. That comes out to a playing percentage of 11 for 27 or roughly 41 percent of the dates they have been scheduled to play have been KO'd by bad weather !
