STAFF REPORTS


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The only thing more exciting than Star Wars Night at the ballpark is the anticipation of Star Wars Night at the ballpark! 
Star Wars Night Episode XI, presented by Alfred State College, is Saturday, June 2nd as the Bisons host the Charlotte Knights at Coca-Cola Field. The game begins at 6:05 p.m., but if you're familiar with Bisons Star Wars Night you know you should arrive early.
And as is tradition, Bisons.com will get you and your whole family locked in witth our official Star Wars Night Fan Guide; your key to getting the most out of this year's event!
Tickets
If you want to come to this year's Star Wars Night, do not wait any longer. There are no more 4-Packs or Super Packs left, and there are fewer than 2,000 tickets remaining for this year's show.
CLICK HERE and get your tickets while you still can!
First Pitch/Gates
Gates will open 2 hours early (4:00 p.m.) because of all of the additional activities and large anticipated crowd at Coca-Cola Field.
If you plan to use ballpark Will Call, it's also not a bad idea to leave a few minutes earlier to avoid longer lines...or even come a day or two in advance. The Coca-Cola Field Box Office will be open on Saturday starting at noon.
*Entering Ballpark/Security*-With increased security and the addition of walkthrough metal detectors (click here for full security measures) please note the following:
Only official Lucas Films characters are allowed to be in full costume. Fans of all ages with full masks or props guns will not be allowed into Coca-Cola Field. Plastic laser swords and lightsabers will be allowed in.
Where do I get a laser sword?
A must-have keepsake on Star Wars Night is your very own Laser Sword. The Bisons will be selling laser swords outside of the Coca-Cola Field prior to gates opening to provide an additional laser sword location. Once you are inside the ballpark we will once again have TWO LASER SWORD REDEMPTION CENTERS at stand 121 on the 3rd base side and near section 122 on the 1st base side. A Laser Sword costs $10 each with proceeds to benefit Compass House.
I bought a 4-Pack. Where do I redeem my hot dog and Coca-Cola coupon?
Avoid lines at the concession stands and use the FOOD COUPON REDEMPTION CENTERS. You can get your hot dog and Coca-Cola in the concourse area near the Washington Street Gate (near section 106), section 119 on the third base side, 122 on the first base side and on the club level near section 213.
Meet the Characters
With the MASSIVE addition of Jabba the Hutt last year and the addition of several new characters, we're going to have more characters than ever on the club level to separate some of your favorite characters. Jabba's palace will remain behind home plate at Won Celery Place near section 104. Please note that in order to prepare for the post-game show, pictures will end after the 6th inning.  
Jersey Auction/Raffle
With SOLO taking flight on the big screen, he and his Millennium Falcon immerse this year's jersey.   Uniforms will be autographed by each player as soon as they come off the field after the game. Some are even being auctioned off RIGHT NOW!! CLICK HERE to see the online auction available until June 1st. But don't worry if you miss out, there will be a JERSEY RAFFLE of at least 15 additional GAME WORN and AUTOGRAPHED Bisons Star Wars Night jerseys (number is dependent on the number of players on the team that night). If you've already purchased a raffle tickets online you'll automatically be entered into the raffle!
Raffle tickets will be sold with all proceeds to benefit Compass House.   Purchase your raffle tickets (one (1) for $5 or five (5) for $20) near Won Celery place gate close to section 104, or see the Compass House Volunteers roaming the ballpark.
New Orders A Star Wars Night Story
We found out that the reason why the Sith continue to try and take over Coca-Cola Field and it's "Convergence" of the force every Star Wars Night. Now the Jedi must sort out the "new" Dark Side after the Emperor was defeated last year. But as we have learned…not everything is what it seems.
Follow the action between innings on the BisonsTV HD scoreboard beginning in the top of the 5th inning and get ready for an amazing on field battle and fireworks show after the game.
