Federation to sponsor day at Rumble Ponies on July 10

By Reporter staff

The Jewish Federation of Greater Binghamton will sponsor a Jewish community outing to see the Rumble Ponies baseball team on Sunday, July 10, at the Mirabito Stadium, 211 Henry St, Binghamton. The game will begin at 1:05 pm. Discounted tickets are $4 each and must be purchased through the Federation, either at its website, www.jfgb.org/; the Federation office, 500 Clubhouse Rd., Vestal; or by calling the Federation at 724-2332. Vouchers will be given in case of a rainout. The last day to purchase tickets is Tuesday, July 5; those purchasing by mail should include the form on page 3 of the article (located here). The Federation is also looking for a child 5-15-years-old to throw out the first pitch.

“It’s summer and that means baseball!” said Shelley Hubal, Federation executive director. “We thought this would be a great communitywide event for baseball fans, families with children of all ages and anyone looking to connect with others in the Jewish community. What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon: a baseball game and time with old or new friends.”
Hubal continued, “We will also be choosing a child to throw out the first pitch. If your child, aged 5-15-years-old is interested, contact me at 724-2332 or director@jfgb.org. We’ll all be there to cheer on the child who is picked.

“We are so pleased to offer reduced price tickets for our Jewish community members. Be sure to join us for a fun afternoon,” Hubal said.
