Bisons Baseball, Who's In?
5/30 -School Kids Day Game

Who says learning isn't fun?!?! The Bisons have a great way for principals and teachers to spice up their lesson plans and give their students a field trip they'll never forget. Don't worry, we won't tell them it's educational!

School Kids Day

The Bisons annual School Kids Day is scheduled for 10:35 a.m., Thursday, May 30 against the Syracuse Mets, presented by New York's 529 College Savings Program and Alfred State College. Since 1988, almost a half a million students and teachers have attended this great event at Sahlen Field.

It's the perfect combination of learning and fun! Each Bisons School Kids Day includes an educational theme (2019's to be announced) and the team makes full use of the BisonsTV HD scoreboard to teach important lessons. Past themes have included anti-bullying, being smart online and in social media and proper health and nutrition. And if you don't think your school can make the journey, the Bisons have also included ways you can raise money to help finance this journey outside the classroom (see below).

Bisons Prep Course

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND! We will once again offer the Bisons School Day 'Prep Course.' This is a presentation that teachers will be able to share with their students to give them all of the information they need before the game, including general info on the game of baseball, the stats that they will see on the video board and slides that tie into our educational theme.

At the end of the prep course, there is a certificate of completion. Classes may use this certificate as a way to reward their students. Photos of children holding up the certificates, including full class photos, can be sent to the Bisons so that they can be shown on the BisonsTV HD Scoreboard during this year's game (please limit photos to 2MB in size).

Stay tuned, we are developing our updated prep course for this year's event.

Instead of making just a few cents on a candy bar, how about making a few dollars on a Bisons ticket? A ticket to a Bisons game represents a great value to your buyers as it can be used throughout the 2019 season. They don't even need to know when they're coming down to the park.
