Fans to vote for new name of Mets Double-A team

The Binghamton Mets will hold a “Name the Team” contest on Opening Day, April 7.

What’s the potential future for the Mets? Do you know what the Mets are doing for the sakes of their own team? Is it possible that they want some new changes to build their professional careers outside the diamond shape field? Well, things are changing up a notch when the team president John Hughes have announced at the Binghamton Mets, New Owner Rollout on Thursday, that the Double-A baseball has set up a brand with a fresh look and name change.

What’s that “fresh new look” or “name” that Hughes announced?

Hughes also revealed that the name will affiliate with the New York Mets play at the NYSEG starting in 2017. Since the Mets has been proud affiliates in the Eastern League, they are here to bring a community and a home in Binghamton that they can call on their own. A question here is how is a new name going to bring a community together?

“We’ll thrilled to be keeping Double-A, New York Mets baseball here in the community; but with a new name that everyone can call its own. The new name will bring the new era of the Mets into a proudly represented jewel of the community,” said Hughes at the Terra Cotta in downtown Binghamton. He shared additional details on several projects the team is tackling at during his presentation where he wants to build a field improvement of the players, promote the pre-season league and offer the opening night in trying to renovate and update concessions.

What do you guys think of this announcement? Do you think a new name can increase their rankings or build the involvement from the community?
