to benefit Hillside Family of Agencies
Join us at Coca-Cola Field on Thursday, August 21 as the Bisons take on the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders at 7:05 p.m. On this special night, the team will hold the 7th Annual Mystery Ball Event, presented by Beechwood Continuing Care with proceeds to benefit Hillside Family of Agencies.
For the last year, we've been collecting autographed baseballs from the biggest names. Of course, some you'd expect to see on a baseball, like Jose Bautista, Jose Reyes, David Ortiz, Matt Harvey and Roberto Alomar.
Others, like E.J. Manuel, Steve Carell, Shaquil O' Neil, Jay Leno and Barbara Walters, not so much.
Ah, the beauty of the Mystery Ball!
On Thursday, August 21, we will have 500 autographed baseballs individually wrapped to conceal the signatures. When you enter the gates of Coca-Cola Field, you can purchase a certificate for a $20 donation to charity. Redeem your ticket and see which signature is now yours!(limit 4 baseballs per person)
Make sure you come early! Gates open at 6:00 p.m. sharp and each year the baseballs sell out quick!
See below for a COMPLETE LIST of autograph participants.
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 Robert Redford baseball you were hoping for. Maybe they have a soft spot in their heart for former Bisons pitcher R.A. Dickey. 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 the Washington St. Gate in case you want to make a quick trade of your mystery ball.
