Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Michael Rubino, better know as "Jingles," isn't easy to forget.

He was known for his huge support of local sports teams, and probably best known for his dancing during B-Mets games.

Jingles passed away in late February. On Saturday, more than 100 friends and family members celebrated his life at the American Legion in Binghamton.

"Everybody knows him, loved him... kids especially at the ball park. Jingles did a lot of volunteer work for the city," friend Geno Regni said.

The celebration raised money to help his family pay for medical and funeral bills.

The theme was baseball, a fitting choice.
