      People see the attendance figures and say, okay, Binghamton is a likely target. The problem is… they probably didn’t know the franchise’s lease of the city-owned stadium is $1 (yes, ONE DOLLAR, city services included), and the B-Mets have complete control of said stadium -ticketing, concessions, advertising, parking, naming rights (which include the NYSEG Stadium name – New York State Electric & Gas, which apparently offers free electric and gas service too). If Beacon says it can turn a profit in Ottawa with a lease in the hundreds of thousands; then Binghamton should be having no problems (and would have lesser travel expenses too). Not to mention the Eastern League was formed less than a block from the stadium – it would be weird not having small town Binghamton in the league it started.
