Binghamton Rumble Ponies to wear Charlie Brown unis

The Double-A Binghamton Rumble Ponies will play a game this season wearing uniforms inspired by the iconic yellow shirt worn by Peanuts character Charlie Brown. The Rumble Ponies, who are named for the classic collection of antique carousels found in Binghamton, New York, will hold Peanuts Night Saturday, April 27, in a game against the Portland Sea Dogs. (Though, as of this writing, the team’s website has the game at 2:05, so it’s more of a Peanuts Afternoon.)

The jerseys, which will feature the legend “Rumble Ponies” in a script that emulates the classic jagged black stripe on Charlie Brown’s shirt, will be auctioned off following the game.

The Charlie Brown jerseys were featured in a Tweet unveiling some details of the Mets affiliate’s promotional schedule for the upcoming season, which also included a Tim Tebow bobblehead, commemorating the 84 games he played in Binghamton last year.
