5/21-22: Blue Jays Weekend
Blue Jays Weekend
The Buffalo Bisons affiliation with the Toronto Blue Jays has been a fantastic partnership. And for a fourth straight year, the Bisons will host a special in-season promotion celebrating an affiliation that's a winner both on the field and off.
BLUE JAYS WEEKEND, presented by Samuel Son & Co. Inc., is back in 2016 with games on Saturday, May 21 and Sunday, May 22.
Special guest appearances by Blue Jays greats JESSE BARFIELD and DEVON WHITE, a new BLUE JAYS AFFILIATION JERSEY & CAP for the Bisons to wear, and giveaways each day: MARCUS STROMAN BOBBLEHEADS on Saturday, May 21 and AFFILIATION PENNANTS on Sunday, May 22!
During each game, the Bisons will give away BLUE JAYS AUTOGRAPHED BASEBALLS from such stars as Marcus Stroman, Aaron Sanchez, Jose Bautista, Josh Donaldson. Other in-game giveaways will include BLUE JAYS TICKETS to see the Bisons' Major League partner play at Rogers Centre.
The Bisons host the Pawtucket Red Sox as we pay tribute to everything that's great about the Bisons and Blue Jays partnership. The clubs will play on Saturday, May 21 with a 1:05 p.m. evening start (Gates 12:00 p.m.) as then a Sunday, May 22 with an afternoon matinee start of 1:05 p.m. (Gates: 12 p.m.).
On each day, the Bisons will also wear a specially-designed Affiliation Throwack Jersey Tops and Caps that pays tribute to the Toronto Blue Jays. This new powder blue jersey top and cap is a tribute to the road jerseys worn by the Blue Jays in the late 1970s through most of the 1980s. The jersey features 'the Hitting Buster' in the middle of the chest with the Bisons' team name arched above it in the classic 'Blue Jays' split font. The jersey also features the Blue Jays' logo patch on the left sleeve, the American and Canadian flags on the right sleeve and a split-font Blue number on the back.
The New Era Cap affiliation cap is also powder blue with a dark blue brim and the Bisons 'B' in a split font.
