Why Was This Famously Mustached NFL Quarterback At The Binghamton Rumble Ponies Game?
It's the 30th year of professional baseball in Binghamton and you just never know what you might see at Mirabito Stadium.
You also don't know who you might see at the ballpark either. We know that you'll have a chance to see and meet Kevin Mitchell on Saturday, May 21st. He was a part of the 1986 World Champion New York Mets team and he'll be on hand before the game for pictures and autographs.
What if I said that Gardner Minshew was at a Binghamton Rumble Ponies game? If you aren't a football fan, you might say "God Bless You" if I said the name, Gardner Minshew.
Minshew played quarterback for Washington State and won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award in 2018. The award goes to the top upperclassmen quarterback in college for their accomplishments on and off the field.
He was drafted in the 6th round by the Jacksonville Jaguars and started week 1 when starting QB Nick Foles got hurt. The man is known for his fu Manchu mustache and exciting play was traded to the Philadelphia Eagles in 2021.
On Friday, April 29th, and Saturday, April 30th, Minshew Mania came to Binghamton under the cover of darkness to enjoy a Rumble Ponies game. He brought fellow Philadelphia Eagle Jack Stoll with him.

So the big question is: Why were Minshew and Stoll here? The answer: Gardner is from the same hometown as Rumble Ponies outfielder, Jake Mangum and the two of them are friends.
I wonder how many Philadelphia fans will ask Mangum to sign some Eagles memorabilia now? Here's my friendly advice to you: Whenever you attend a Rumble Ponies game, be on the lookout for the mustached man himself, Gardner Minshew.
