Rumble Ponies name Reid Brignac manager for 2022 season
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (WBNG) - The Binghamton Rumble Ponies announced Thursday afternoon that former MLB player Reid Brignac will be the new manager of the team for the 2022 season. Brignac will be joined by pitching coach Jerome Williams, hitting coach Tommy Joseph, and bench coach Mariano Duncan.
Brignac was formerly the manager of the St. Lucie Mets of the Low-A Florida League, so he’s no stranger to the Mets’ organization. This is Brignac’s third year in the organization since retiring as a player in 2018. During his time in the big leagues, Brignac played for parts of nine seasons for the Tampa Bay Rays, Colorado Rockies, Atlanta Braves, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees, and Miami Marlins.
Jerome Williams also held the pitching coach position on Brignac’s staff with St. Lucie and is entering his fourth season in the Mets organization. Tommy Joseph joins Brignac and Williams in being promoted from the same position in St. Lucie to Double-A Binghamton. While Mariano Duncan served as the bench coach for the High-A Brooklyn Cyclones last year.
The Rumble Ponies open the 2022 season on the road against the Hartford Yard Goats on Friday, April 8, with the home opener on Tuesday, April 12 against the Bowie Baysox.
