The Mets and the Binghamton Mets have been affiliated with one another since the 1992, and on Tuesday, the clubs ensured their relationship would last through this decade.
The Mets and the Binghamton Mets announced they’ve extended their player development agreement through 2020.
“We consider our affiliation with the New York Mets the crown jewel of our assets,” said B-Mets President Mike Urda. “Fans can rest assured that the Binghamton Mets and New York Mets will be linked for the next six years.”
“The Mets love their affiliation in Binghamton,” Urda continued. “As the team’s affiliate of the year last season, we take pride in treating every Mets player, manager, coach and visiting member of the front office like family.”
Their current player development agreement expired after 2016.
“We are excited to continue our long-standing partnership with the Binghamton Mets, a partnership that works well for both our players and our fans,” said VP of Player Development and Amateur Scouting Paul DePodesta. “Mike Urda and his staff are first class, and we hope to continue to provide them and all B-Mets fans with winning baseball.”
