One awesome promotional giveaway!
The Buffalo Bisons announced their action packed promotional lineup today, and once again there will be something for everybody for another fun filled season at the ballpark.
So what jumped out at me? Hands down, it's August 8, when the team will give away replica ballparks of War Memorial Stadium to the first 4000 fans through the Swan Street gate that night.
I like bobbleheads, but quite frankly, I'm a bit bobbleheaded out as my shelf is full of statuettes. But being a huge fan of venues, I love these replica ballpark giveaways. Last year the Bisons gave away a replica of Dunn Tire Park in a similar promotion, and it was no ordinary trinket. The piece weighed almost a pound, was stunning in detail, and has earned an honored spot in my display of sports collectibles.
I have fond childhood memories of the Rockpile - seeing the Bills bumble and stumble in those early OJ days. My first baseball game in 1970 - Bisons v Mud Hens. It was a grey drizzly day in a nearly empty stadium, my neighbor took me, I collected a foul ball and for me as a little boy the experience was magic. A month later the Bisons were gone to Winnipeg and I was devastated.
So good luck and congrats to the 3999 of you who come down to the ballpark and snare yourselves a cool souvenir. I say 3999 because one of those Rockpile replicas has my name on it, come hell or high water!
HERE is all the information you will need on the Bisons' 2007 promotional schedule.
