Bisons Mystery BallThe 'Mystery Ball' explained

Over the last year, we've collected over 500 autographed baseballs from the biggest names. Of course, some you'd expect to see on a baseball, like Josh Donaldson, Aaron Judge, Tom Seaver and Roberto Alomar

Others, like Jack Eichel, Tyrod Taylor, and John Travolta, not so much.

Ah, the beauty of the Mystery Ball! When you purchase a Mystery Ball ticket inside Coca-Cola Field, it can be redeemed for a gift-wrapped baseball from any one of our great participants. Who you get, for now, remains a mystery!!!


Mystery Ball Format

To ensure that as many fans as possible can take part in the popular Mystery Ball event, the event will follow the same format in 2017 as last year. Mystery Ball tickets will be sold at the OAK ST. GATE ONLY, which will open at the same time as all other gates at 6:00 p.m. Fans can line up early at the Oak St. gate if desired. At 6:00 p.m., fans with game tickets can enter though the Oak St. gate, and once inside, they will be given the opportunity to purchase one (1) Mystery Ball Ticket for a $20 donation to The Vine Uganda. Fans can then redeem that ticket for a gift-wrapped autographed baseball at the Mystery Ball table by Section 104 on the main level of the concourse at any time.

See below for a COMPLETE LIST of autograph participants.


Trading StationThe Trading Station

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND...The Bisons Mystery Ball Trading Station will be back up and running. Did the person next to you just unwrap the Sam Reinhart baseball you were hoping for. Maybe they have a soft spot in their heart for former Blue Jays star Carlos Delgado. Time to offer e a trade and see if you can make a deal. Maybe all you'll need to do is throw in a hot dog or some French fries!

The Mystery Ball Trading Station will be set up near Section 104 in case you want to make a quick trade of your mystery ball.
