BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - The Double-A franchise of the New York Mets has a new nickname, the Rumble Ponies.

Fans made the choice in a vote, and results were released Thursday at an elementary school in Binghamton. Rumble Ponies topped five other nicknames in the running: Bullheads, Gobblers, Stud Muffins, Timber Jockeys and Rocking Horses.

Team owner John Hughes asked fans to submit their ideas for the new nickname, and the six finalists were announced in April.

The franchise shared the nickname of the parent club since moving to Binghamton in 1992.
