BUFFALO (WKBW) - The Bisons have announced plans for a special 25th anniversary game during their 25th season of baseball in downtown Buffalo.

The event is set for August 25th, when the Bisons host the Rochester Red Wings from Coca Cola field. Gates will open at 4:30pm, and first pitch is set for 6:05. Tickets for the game will cost only $5, with jersey giveaways, raffles, and fireworks.

Similar to the home run derby during All-Star Weekend, several home run targets will award fans with prizes if they are hit by a Bisons batter.

As part of the special 25th Season ceremonies, the Bisons will announce their "All 25 Seasons Team," the Earl of Bud will make an appearance, and several video tributes will be played throughout the night.
