The Binghamton Triplets were a minor league baseball team in Binghamton, New York, affiliated with the New York Yankees (1932-1961, 1965-1968); the team also had brief affiliations with the Kansas City Athletics (1962-1963) and the Milwaukee Braves (1964). The Triplets played in the former New York-Pennsylvania League (1923-1937), the Eastern League (1938-1963, 1967-1968), and the current New York-Penn League (1964-66). They won league championships in 1929, 1933, 1935, 1940, 1944, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1965, and 1967. The Triplets folded in 1968, and the city was without a team until the current Class AA Binghamton Rumble Ponies began play in 1992.

The Triplets played their home games at Johnson Field in nearby Johnson City until the team disbanded in 1968; the old ballpark was then torn down to help construct New York Route 17. The team wore caps with an intertwined 'T' and 'C' logo (similar to the original Minnesota Twins cap insignia); the letters stood for 'Triple Cities' (i.e., Binghamton, Johnson City, and Endicott). While the Triplets were a Yankee farm team, the parent club--featuring such legends as Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, and Mickey Mantle--played one exhibition game each year at Johnson Field.
