Bisons announce new smoke-free, tobacco-free policies


BUFFALO -- The Buffalo Bisons have announced additional measures to ensure that Coca-Cola Field and the James D. Griffin Plaza around the ballpark are both smoke-free and tobacco-free for all events in 2017.
In cooperation with Roswell Park Cancer Institute and Tobacco-Free Erie-Niagara, the use of all tobacco-related products, including the use of vapor or e-cigarettes as well as chewing tobacco, will be strictly forbidden both inside Coca-Cola Field and the James D. Griffin Plaza surrounding the ballpark.
There is also a strict no re-entry policy now in place for all ballpark events. Fans will no longer be allowed to temporarily leave to use tobacco-related products.
"The Buffalo Bisons organization is excited to share these new policies, which ensure a fun and comfortable environment for all our fans attending Coca-Cola Field. We want to thank Roswell Park and Tobacco-Free Erie-Niagara for their support in helping us make the ballpark 100% tobacco-free," said Mike Buczkowski, Vice President/General Manager of the Buffalo Bisons.
"This policy is knocking tobacco out of the park for good. We applaud the Buffalo Bisons for protecting everyone's right to clean, fresh air," said Anthony G. Billoni, Director of Tobacco-Free Western New York.
