Tim Heiman Stepping Down From Rumble PoniesPosted: Updated:
Binghamton, N.Y. - After eight seasons with the New York Mets Double-A team, lead broadcaster Tim Heiman will be stepping down as the Ponies Director of Broadcasting and Media Relations. His final broadcast will be on Wednesday May 1.
Heiman will transition to a mechanical engineering position in the Binghamton area with BAE Systems. He will continue to serve as play-by-play broadcaster for Binghamton University’s Division 1 sports programs.
Heiman joined the Binghamton Mets in 2011 as a Broadcast and Media Relations Assistant working with Matt McCabe. Following McCabe’s departure, he made his debut as the team’s lead radio broadcaster in 2012. Heiman provided the play-by-play for four postseason runs, including the B-Mets’ Eastern League championship in 2014. Ballpark Digest named him Minor League Baseball’s Broadcaster of the Year in September 2018.
"The fact that I had the opportunity to do eight seasons, eight years, of not only Double-A baseball but for the team I grew up rooting for as a kid, the New York Mets" said Heiman. The fact that I was able to get the chance to interact with some of the guys that are now stars with the New York Mets, it is something that's tough to describe."
Jacob Wilkins, a native of East Meadow, NY will assume Heiman’s role as Director of Broadcasting & Media Relations.
