BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — As some of our favorite summer activities that were closed in 2020 start popping back up again, so are hiring opportunities. Out at the waterfront, at parks and maybe soon at Sahlen field, they're looking for people to keep things running.

"We’re looking to add a lot of people to our seasonal team here—our Bison’s baseball team to help provide the championship service that our fans have grown accustomed to," said Brad Bisbing, Assistant General Manager.
