The Buffalo Bisons will honor Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus during "Marcell Dareus Day" at  Coca-Cola Field on Tuesday, June 13th. 

Dareus has donated $2,500 to the Buffalo Bisons Charitable Foundation that will allow more than 100 children from the Boys and Girls Club of Buffalo to attend the game against the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. 

Dareus will also throw out the ceremonial first pitch and will conduct an autograph signing for fans. 

"I'm looking forward to my night at the ballpark and I thank the Buffalo Bisons for having me, said the two-time Pro Bowler in a release. "Bust the best part is going to be hanging out with the kids, some of whom have never seen a baseball game or been to the ballpark, and give them another life experience."

Dareus has played his entire 6-year NFL career in Buffalo. He was a first team All-Pro selection in 2014.
