    Tebow didn’t play in the second game.
    Binghamton won 6-3 on the strength of Sergakis’ 3 run homer.

      Thanks, David, for the, as usual, recent excellent updates–much appreciated.
      Hoping Tebow has a great weekend and all his fans as well!;D

  2. Danny says:

    Tebow played in the second game of the doubleheader today. He went 0-2 with a walk and a strikeout.

    He walked in the 5th inning on four pitches. On the first pitch, he laid off a tailing in breaking ball that he’s been striking out a lot on lately. He didn’t see that pitch again as there were two outside pitches and a high pitch. He got subbed out for a pinch runner.

    Going into the bottom of the 6th, Ponies up 4-3. This will be a seven inning game.

    Brandi, how much energy is the global forex market using to find monetary prices?

  4. David says:

    Binghamton split the double header today and won the series against NH 3-2. The second game required 2 extra innings for the Ponies to win 10-8.

    • Danny says:

      The Fisher Cats just kept on coming, no matter how many runs the Ponies scored. The Ponies just hung in there and outlasted them.

      I would have liked to see the manager leave Tim in there when he got his walk instead of opting for a pinch runner. As it turned out, the move really didn’t help the team out as it went into extra innings and Tebow couldn’t play anymore.

      Anyway, the Ponies came out winners.

      The Ponies have the day off tomorrow and open up a series with the Richmond Flying Squirrels on Tuesday, a team they haven’t played yet this season. Their parent club is the San Francisco Giants.

        Tim Tebow to speak about faith at First Baptist Church in Johnson City NY
        This church is about a mile west of Binghamton, so it wasn’t a reason to take Tebow out of the game for travel. This is how Tebow spends his off days.

        • Danny says:

          I think it was more game situational than accommodating Tim’s off day schedule, which they did do in spring training with the TTF golf tournament.

          It’s a 5 1/2 hour drive from Manchester to Binghamton so I’m sure they were headed back tonight.

          That will be a neat experience for those who get to see him Monday night.

          • ck says:

            Appreciate you answering the question about Tebow playing or not–tyvm, Danny.;D
            Yes, agree, everyone attending on Monday @ 7:00 P.M.-5/21-are blessed getting to see/hear Tebow!

        • ck says:

          Even on his day off, he still thinks of doing good by presenting a positive message…what an inspiration to all who are looking for a “REAL” role model! Glad we have a Tebow and believe GOD IS especially pleased by all his deeds that are “ACTIONS” and not just verbiage!!!
          Thanks, David, for a great link + updates too!;D (Did some research on YoungLife and they are a great venue…would love to attend.)

      • ck says:

        Kinda wondering why that was done? Oh well, at least they won. Thanks, Danny, for the excellent updates too.

    • ck says:

      Great news about finishing out with 2 WINS! Thanks for the link, David.

  5. Danny says:

    Tim and the Rumble Ponies have the day off today.

    Tim is spending his day off at a speaking event in Johnson City, NY, near Binghamton. Thanks David for the link to the event. It should be a good one!


    Back to baseball tomorrow night, the start of a seven game homestand. They play the Richmond Flying Squirrels with a 6:35 Eastern first pitch.

  6. Danny says:

    For your day off entertainment, MLB Animal Interference:


    I particularly liked the first one with the pigeons.

  7. Danny says:

    Here’s a video of Finn the Bat Dog, the Las Vegas 51’s mascot. If/when Tebow plays for the 51’s, he’ll see a lot of Finn.


  8. Brandi says:

    Tim’s Game Tying 3-Run Homer was Binghamton’s Top Sports Play this week.


    Tim has been in the Top-5 Plays of Binghamton Sports most weeks. But this week he’s #1.

  9. David says:

    Tebow has played 162 games in professional baseball. How has he done?

    • Danny says:

      Tim’s numbers have been on a steady increase, and that’s facing tougher competition through his journey through the minors.

      The number of errors stand out, as out of the 11 errors committed during his career, he has only one this year.

      Just BA alone:

      Columbia: .220
      St. Lucie .231
      Binghamton: .240

      He had 214 AB’s with Columbia
      He had 216 AB’s with St Lucie

      I had some predictions at the beginning of the season where I thought Tim would be at or near the All Star break.

      If I pro-rate the numbers and project for 215 AB’s by the end of June:

      Tim is currently at .240 BA, which I thought he’d be between .240 and .250. Pretty close if he maintains.

      Tim’s projected HR’s is 7, which I thought 8-10
      Tim’s projected RBI’s is 32, which I thought 40-50.

      So, a little work to be done. Between now and June 30, there’s only three more games with Erie, and most of the teams the Ponies will be playing going forward are teams that haven’t faced Tebow yet.

      So, I see a lot of upside ahead. He’s been swinging the bat better and as the weather has been warming up, so has Tim’s bat.

      • Brandi says:

        Tim’s schedule is basically unprecedented. With the Mets Jose Bautista signing, they have a little breather from the pressure on their Outfield depth. That should mean Tim can stay on their planned schedule which would have him headed to Las Vegas in early July.

        That would be Playing in 4 Leagues in a Season & a half. 5, including the Major Leagues, in two Season if the planned Call-Up for September’s Roster Expansion takes place.

        Only Tim Tebow. 🙂

        • Danny says:

          Jose Bautista sort of fell into the Mets lap. He went 1-3 with a double and run scored. That was the only run for the Mets tonight as they lost to the Marlins 5-1.

          Bautista will be a serviceable option for the Mets. He’s certainly not a long term guy, but someone to plug in a gap. I’m sure the Mets would have liked to have Tebow ready, but AAA will be good experience for him.

          I agree Brandi, he goes to Vegas before the Eastern League All Star break in early July.

          As TMA referred to below, his ankle was a bigger deal than we all thought earlier. I think it still affects him some with his outfield throws (pushing off the injured left ankle) and hitting. He’s doing pretty well given all that.

        • ck says:

          WOW! That is just around the corner…thanks, Brandi, for a positive update!
          Was going to get a RP shirt…

      • TheMascotArmy says:

        Don’t forget about his ankle early on.

      • ck says:

        Like the stats, Danny, and thanks for compiling all the great #’s!

      • Shirley says:

        Thanks you guys for all the analysis.

    • ck says:

      Great link and thanks much, David. Looks like he is on his way to the “BIG LEAGUES” at that even w/obstacles!!!

  10. Danny says:

    Tonight’s game has been rained out and there will be a double header tomorrow.

    • ck says:

      He is “all in” for baseball and was the same w/football…don’t see that type of determination or sticking to it no matter what obstacles are presented very often. Glad he is getting pointers from the best; plus, he is not doing it for “money or fame”, like he stated…Great link (tyvm, Danny)!

  11. Danny says:

    Doubleheader tonight, Game 1 begins 5:35pm Eastern vs. the Richmond Flying Squirrels. Two seven inning games.

    Tebow isn’t in the lineup for Game 1. Game 2 starts about 15 minutes after Game 1 ends. I assume he’ll be in the lineup for Game 2.

  12. Danny says:

    Tebow pinch hits in the fifth inning for the pitcher Crismatt, he hits a line drive to right field for a single, moving Joey Wong from 1st to 3rd. Taylor up next and hits into a double play to end the inning.

    Roseboom is the new Binghamton pitcher and replaces Tebow in the lineup, so Tebow is done for Game 1.

    1-1 with a single. BA now .246.

  13. Bubbaelvis says:

    I am beginning to wonder if he re-injured the ankle.He usually doesn’t sit out more than 1 game. We will see in game 2.

  14. Danny says:

    And this is how you do it…standing for the National Anthem.

    Tebow third person in the line.


  15. David says:

    Can you believe how fast McNeil has improved? Today was the first time he hasn’t had a hit since April 29 when his average was .250
    He was 0 and 1 with 2 walks today hitting a .326 AVG
    He leads the league with 12 HRs with 6 of them in the last 10 games.
    His OPS is 1.129 which just surpassed Alonso.
    This is how much a player can improve in just 3 weeks and we hope will happen for Tebow.

    • Danny says:

      All Tebow has to do is get into a hot streak like he did in July last year. He’s sure capable of it.

    • ck says:

      What was he on the disabled list for? Just curious…Tebow has a lot of determination and focus plus, God’s on his side–anything is possible w/that combination!

  16. Danny says:

    Tebow batting 6th playing LF for Game 2.

    First pitch 8:10pm Eastern.

  17. Danny says:

    Tebow finishes the second game 0-3 with two strikeouts and on base on a fielder’s choice. He also made a great catch in foul territory in the third inning.

    The Ponies drop the second game of the doubleheader 4-1.

  18. Danny says:

    In a matinee game today, the Ponies win 6-4 over the Flying Squirrels!

    Tebow goes 1-3 with a run scored. He reached on a single, walk and a fielder’s choice.

    Next up, the Bowie Baysox come to Binghamton to start a series beginning tomorrow night.

  19. David says:

    The crowd of kids chanting “Let’s go Tebow!”

  20. Bubbaelvis says:

    Hey, I’m feeling the start of a Tebow hitting streak. Time to crank it up.

  21. Danny says:

    Tebow batting 8th playing LF tonight.

    First pitch 7:05pm Eastern

  22. Danny says:

    Rumble Ponies hold on to defeat the Baysox 6-4 tonight.

    Tebow went 0-3 with a walk, two groundouts and a flyout.

    Tim had a good day in the field. Tebow had all three putouts in the fifth, the first ball he made a highlight reel diving catch. Six putouts overall so he was pretty busy in the field. Very solid night in left tonight.

    Next game is with the Baysox on Saturday with a 6:05pm Eastern start.

  23. David says:

    Larry Burneal, sports director at WBNG, on Tebow’s diet and defense.

    • Danny says:

      The coaches see it and I can see it too. A nice diving catch last night and a good over the shoulder catch shown in the video are just a couple of examples how he’s progressed as a fielder.

      Improvements in both batting and fielding are going to be keys in Tim’s development. He’s certainly made strides in his fielding as only one error this season as opposed to 10 last year. He’s getting better jumps and has done well. Batting overall has improved significantly. Tim has had only two instances where he has gone two games without a hit, so he is showing some consistency there.

  24. Danny says:

    Tebow batting 8th playing DH tonight.

    First pitch 6:05 Eastern

  25. Danny says:

    Binghamton on a Peter Alonso 2 run homer in the eighth sealed the victory 3-1 over the Baysox.

    Tebow goes 1-3 with a single and two groundouts. As he was DH, no fielding stats to report.

    Next up, a 6:35pm start tomorrow night.

      • Danny says:

        Tim was running very well to first; I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the ankle.

        Good to see him get a hit tonight. I doublechecked the MiLB stats on Tim and he has never gone more than two games without a hit in AA. That to me is showing some consistency.

        I’ve noticed a change in the way pitchers have been approaching Tim. He’s not chasing the breaking ball going into him anymore so the pitchers are challenging him with fastballs.

        The announcers did say tonight that even though Tebow gets behind 0-2 quite a bit, often times he works the count back his way to 2-2 or 3-2. Tonight he had a 8 pitch at bat that ended in strikeout, but the key is that the pitcher had to throw extra pitches and run up the pitch count.

        Strikeouts are getting better too, around 30% for the last 5 games. Certainly encouraging.

  26. Danny says:

    The Rumble Ponies set a franchise attendance record for three consecutive home games.


    “Tonight, we hit a franchise record of most well-attended games in a 3 day stretch with 17,615 fans coming to RumbleTown the last 3 days. Thank you fans!”

    The Tebow effect is alive and well.
