Who says learning isn't fun?!?! The Bisons have a great way for principals and teachers to spice up their lesson plans and give their students a field trip they'll never forget. Don't worry, we won't tell them it's educational!
The Bisons annual School Kids Day is scheduled for Thursday, June 1 against St. Paul (11:05 a.m.), presented by New York's 529 College Savings Program and Alfred State College. Since 1988, almost a half a million students and teachers have attended this great event at Sahlen Field.
It's the perfect combination of learning and fun! Each Bisons School Kids Day includes an educational theme and the team makes full use of the BisonsTV HD scoreboard to teach important lessons. This year's School Kids Day theme is STEM and how the Bisons and their players use Science, Technology, Engineering and Math every day at the ballpark!
And if you don't think your school can make the journey, the Bisons have also included ways you can raise money to help finance this journey outside the classroom.
Signing up your school or your class is easy. Just contact our Class Leader Shaun O'Lay ([email protected] | (716) 846-2032) and he'll reserve your spot today with just a rough estimate of the number of children that can attend. He can also provide more information on discounted meal options, prep course to get your students ready for the big game and fundraising possibilities to help everyone get to the ballpark this year!

We are once again offering a free Bisons School Kids Day Prep Course, a presentation that teachers are able to share with their students to give them all of the information they need before the game, including general info on the game of baseball, the stats that they will see on the video board and slides that tie into our educational theme.
At the end of the prep course, there is a certificate of completion. Classes may use this certificate as a way to reward their students. Photos of children holding up the certificates, including full class photos, can be sent to the Bisons (email: [email protected]) so that they can be shown on the BisonsTV HD Scoreboard during this year's game! (please limit photos to 2MB in size)
Teachers, check out this 'Prevention Baseball' Game that uses the game of baseball and a fun quiz to further enforce to your students the pitfalls and dangers of substance abuse, thanks to our great partners at WNY United Against Drug & Alcohol Abuse.

We were super bummed that the weather did not allow us to have this year's event. Fans holding tickets to 2022's School Kids Day game can exchange them for a comparable ticket to any future 2022 Bisons game (excluding July 4th). All school kids that were planning to attend the game on June 7, 2022 will also receive vouchers for two additional tickets to a future Bisons game of their choice (excluding July 4th). These vouchers will be sent directly to the schools for distribution.
All ticket exchanges must be made at the Sahlen Field Box Office.
