Tour of NYSEG stadium

August 31, 2016

On Aug 31 the Southern Tier Chapter of APICS welcomes its members and guests to tour NYSEG stadium, the home of the Binghamton Mets professional baseball team! The stadium was built in 1991, with the B-Mets playing their first season in 1992, marking the return of minor league baseball to Binghamton.


NYSEG stadium and the B-Mets are celebrating 25 years in the Triple Cities. STAPICS will get a behind-the-scenes look at how a professional ball team and its hosting facility operate. What do the dugouts look like? How many baseballs do they have ready for each game? How many hot dogs do they go through a game - and where is the Cracker Jack? This is your chance to see and ask.

Wednesday Aug 31
6 PM at NYSEG stadium
RSVP to steve.stanchak@ricoh-usa.com by 8/19 to join us
