Star Wars Night 2016
The Saga will continue...
Star Wars Night -Episode IX, presented by Alfred State College, is set to return in 2016! A date of the next installment of this great event is to be announced.
The 2015 event was yet another smashing success in the event's history. A sold out crowd of 17,600 pushed the event's total attendance mark over the 117,000-mark since 2008. The Bisons beat the Clippers, 5-1, and the fans in the attendance were treated to an awesome post game live show on the field!
Every year, this must-attend event game features Character Appearances from The North Ridge and The 501st and Rebel Legion. Laser Swords are sold to benefit the Compass House as well as Game-Worn and Autographed Jersey Auctions before the game on Bisons.com and at the ballpark on the night of the event. Of course, the battle for control of the ballpark rages on between the Jedi Knights and the Dark Side and is played out over between-inning movies before the final postgame On-Field Battle and Fireworks Show.
For six consecutive years, the Bisons players have worn their own Star Wars Night Jerseys. This past season's version was a Jedi Robe Jersey (click image to enlarge), brown and tan and resembling the classic Jedi outfit. The robe is opened slightly on the jersey to reveal the Knight's primary weapon, a holstered lightsaber. The Bisons Star Wars Night logo is featured on the jersey's left chest.
Each year, the Bisons auction and raffle off these specialized jerseys after they have been worn and autographed by the players. In 2015, proceeds of the jersey raffle benefited Compass House
