Pedro Lopez will begin his third season as Binghamton skipper when the B-Mets host the Akron Rubber Ducks on Thursday at 6:35. Lopez joins exclusive company as John Tamargo and Mako Oliveras as the only managers to spend three seasons with the B-Mets.
Lopez was afforded the chance to join the Major League team for the last few weeks of the season.

He said after the first game in New York, he called his wife and told her it was unbelievable to see his "sons," as he called them, playing at the big league level.
