Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The B-Mets finished up their series with an early morning game against the Thunder Thursday, which allowed for a rare night off. However the team didn't spend that time at home.
The B-Mets took to Little Venice in Binghamton to help serve out some food and auction off memorabilia. All proceeds from the auction and dinners bought from five until eight Thursday evening went to the Wendy's Walk for Kids Charity.
The players, and mascots also took the time to sign autographs and talk to the fans about life in the minor leagues, but the players learned a thing or two about the city as well.
"We get to sit down and kind of mingle with the people that come to the games every day and cheer us on every day, so we're getting to know them on a personal level," said starting pitcher Logan Verrett. "It's real nice. They've got little secrets about Binghamton that we wouldn't have known about otherwise like places to eat and things to do on our off days."
"You can get to see fans and help the charity. Like you said you know we're on the field every day, so once you get a chance to interact with the people that are watching the game, that's my favorite part," said outfielder Alonzo Harris. "You get to meet the people that are hollering and cheering for you."
Binghamton travels to Altoona on Friday to start a three game series. For more information on the Wendy's Walk For Kids, head to their website here.
