Rainouts & Delays

Here's hoping this is the least visited page on However, we do play baseball in Buffalo, where the weather can change in an instant. Here are the important polices regarding inclement weather at the ballpark.

The absolute best way to know the status of a Bisons game during days of inclement weather is to follow the Bisons on twitter (@BuffaloBisons) and facebook ( We will provide updates throughout those days.

Postponing a Game

There are basically two types of cancellations of Bisons games due to adverse weather conditions:

Game in progress postponed

If this occurs while you are at the ballpark, keep your ticket stub and redeem it at the ticket office for a future game this season, subject to availability and excluding special events. Please be advised, this transaction does not have to take place on the day the game is postponed. By Major League Baseball rules, five innings (or four and a half innings if the home team is leading the game) constitutes a complete game and no ticket refunds or rain checks will be issued. In the event a doubleheader is postponed after five innings of game one have been completed, it will be considered a complete game. No refunds or rain checks will be issued.

Game postponed before gates open

If this occurs, keep your whole ticket and exchange it at the ticket office for a future game of your choice this season, subject to availability and excluding special events.

PLEASE NOTE: Umbrellas are permitted inside the ballpark. However, they may only be deployed while the game is officially in a rain delay. If you open an umbrella during game action, you will be asked by an usher to close it.

Postponed Games/Doubleheaders

We don't want to have to add anything to this chart! But in case a Bisons' game at the ballpark does rain out, here's where you can get up-to-date information on when games will be made up.

Generally, all doubleheaders played at the ballpark are two, seven-inning contests. After the conclusion of a first game of a doubleheader, there is approximately a 30-minute break before the start of game two. When known, the exact start time will be announced to the crowd via public address.

Unless otherwise noted, all Bisons home doubleheaders are Single-Admission Doubleheaders. That means there is no exit/re-entry and a ticket of the date of a doubleheader is good for admission to both games.

As always, all Bisons' games and times are subject to change.
