BISONS FAN GUIDE: Saturday's Superhero Night

STAFF REPORTS


BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Saturday, August 11 is Superhero Night at the ballpark, presented by Niagara County Community College. 
First pitch is at 6:05 p.m. between the Bisons and the Toledo Mud Hens, but we are opening the ballpark a full THREE HOURS early so that fans can enjoy all the action on the field and off.
From live batting practice to over 50 of your superheroes and villains, postgame fireworks and special Super Celery jerseys up for auction, there's a lot going on at this must-attend night at the ballpark.
So, just like a mastermind who thinks they have the upperhand, we're going to reveal our entire plan…so you can enjoy everything that Superhero Night has to offer.

Jersey Auction Underway -BID NOW

Even before Superhero Night arrives, we have a great opportunity for you to take home something special from the night's festivities. Now through Friday, August 10 at 5:00 p.m., we are auction off TEN of the game-warn autographed jerseys from this year's event. Win the jersey now and pick it up after the player/coach wears it and signs in on Saturday.
CLICK HERE to bid now on jerseys such as Vlad Guerrero Jr's, Danny Jansen's and Devon White's. Remember, these jerseys will not be sold in stores, so this is your only way to ensure yourself one of these great collectibles.

Ballpark Gates & LIVE Batting Practice

Get to the ballpark early to see your superheroes both on the field an off.
On Superhero Night, the Inspire Dental Gate at Swan St. will open at the special time of 3:00 p.m. Fans with game tickets will be able to get in the park then to watch Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and the Bisons players take batting practice on the field (weather permitting) and you'll also be able to meet and get your picture taken with some of the over 50 superheroes and villains that will be in attendance.
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. 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 Superhero Alliance members or volunteers are allowed to be in full costume. Children are encouraged to dress up as their favorite Superhero while adults will be asked to remove any masks or helmets covering their faces.

Where do I get a cape or shield?

There will be TWO REDEMPTION CENTERS at stand 121 on the 3rd base side and near section 122 on the 1st base side. A Shield or Cape cost $10 each with proceeds to benefit the Superhero 5K Race which benefits the Mental Health Association and Compeer of Greater Buffalo.

I bought a 4-Pack. Where do I get food?

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 and any of the full service stands where hot dogs are sold. 

Meet the Characters

Over 50 characters will be appearing throughout the night and will be available for pictures at One Celery Place (1B side) as well as throughout the ballpark. Characters will be available from 3:00pm up until the 6th inning. ***outwit the crowd by heading to the Club Level first as characters will be all over Coca-Cola Field.

Jersey Auction/Raffle

Celery is a Superhero and is the main focus of this year's Superhero Jersey! Along with our Online Auction, there will be a Jersey Raffle of at least 15 additional game worn and autographed Super-Celery 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 the Superhero 5K Race which benefits the Mental Health Association and Compeer of Greater Buffalo.  
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 Volunteers roaming the ballpark.  

Superhero Storyline

With Celery being "the face" of the jerseys it's clear that it has been working with the Superheroes…but for which side?     
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.
