Bisons announce Opening Day, Star Wars Night for 2019

For those who like countdown clocks, it's 220 days until Opening Day for the Buffalo Bisons.

The Herd announced its 2019 schedule on Monday and will open next season at home on April 4 against the Scranton/Wilke-Barre RailRiders.

While game times and other promotions will be announced over the winter, the Bisons did release the dates of their biggest events.

July 3 will be the 25th KeyBank Independence Eve celebration. Star Wars Night, in its 12th year, will be June 8, while Superhero Night will be Aug. 17.

Of particular interest to Toronto Blue Jays fans, nearly 70 percent of Buffalo's home games are scheduled for when the Blue Jays are on the road, including eight of Buffalo's 11 home weekends.

Also of note is the 140-game schedule includes 69 home dates and a scheduled doubleheader against Scranton on April 20. Nearly half (32) of the team's home dates are on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The Bisons 44 home games from June through August are one more than this year's schedule.

Season tickets for the 135th season of professional baseball in Buffalo go on sale Monday, Oct. 1.
