The Binghamton Mets will honor former official scorer Steve Kraly with a special “SK” patch on all their jerseys for the 2016 season. The team will also commemorate their 25th season with an additional patch.
Kraly served as the official scorer at NYSEG Stadium from the B-Mets’ inaugural season in 1992 through their Eastern League championship in 2014. The Southern Tier baseball legend won 19 games with the 1953 Binghamton Triplets before pitching in the Major Leagues with the New York Yankees later that season. He earned a World Series ring after New York knocked off Brooklyn for their fifth-straight title.
Kraly passed away on March 7, 2016.
“Steve was a beloved member of the B-Mets family and the Southern Tier community,” said B-Mets general manager Jim Weed. “He was a fixture at NYSEG Stadium and we are thrilled to honor his legacy with this patch.”
In addition to the patch, the B-Mets will dedicate a plaque to Kraly on Opening Night that will be placed above his seat in the NYSEG Stadium press box.
