Rumble Ponies Bask in Sunshine, Cheers and Victory
It was a memorable day at NYSEG Stadium on Baseball in Education Day on Thursday. An announced crowd of 6,311 cheered the Rumble Ponies on to a home victory. Sunshine pushed temperatures into the 80's as the Rumble Ponies earned a 6-4 win over the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Many of the fans on hand were local school students who turned out for a day at the ball park.
