First off, to all of my fans, I say "Goodbye." This is not an easy thing for me to say to the fine folks of Binghamton. The Binghamton Mets have been a major part of my baseball career, and I know that I am really going to miss NYSEG Stadium and the Binghamton area. Thank you all for filling my life with some great memories over the past five seasons. Even on the worst of days, I can still remember closing my eyes and knowing that everything was great!
I sincerely thank the great fans for all of the support that you've provided to me, the players, and the coaching staff. Thank you to our former owner, Mike Urda, who I've shared some great memories with during my career, and a big thanks to John Hughes, our new owner. Although we only spent one season together I have seen great things and know that the future is bright for Binghamton with you at the helm. I express my deepest gratitude to Jim Weed and the front office for all they have done for my family and me.
Out of all the moments in my professional career, the 2014 Eastern League Championship will go down as the greatest.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to everyone in Binghamton for making me feel right at home. I have said it before and continue to say again-Binghamton is my second home! Binghamton will always be in my heart, and I promise to visit again.
Even though I have moved on to Las Vegas, I want to stress to the fans to continue to support the new team name, the Rumble Ponies. The team is in good hands and great things are to come.
Thank You and God Bless:
