The start of a new baseball season brings with it assurances that yes indeed, spring is back. The Buffalo Bisons got their season off to a winning start Thursday, opening their 2019 International League campaign with an 8-3 win at Sahlen Field against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.

The top prospect in all of baseball made his debut with the Buffalo Bisons Tuesday night. Vladimir Guerrero Jr., son of hall of famer Vladimir Guerrero, had a relatively uneventful performance in front of a large crowd at Coca-Cola Field even though the Bisons lost to the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs 11-8.  

It’s only a matter of time before he gets promoted to the Toronto Blue Jays. Until then, the 19-year old phenom will develop his skills in Buffalo. WBFO’s Nick Lippa reports.

The Buffalo Bisons open their season tonight on the road against the Rochester Red wings weather permitting. They look to bounce back this year after a disappointing 2017 season. They’ll have some help to start from a pitcher/comedian with major league experience, Joe Biagini.

The Buffalo Bisons have a new manager and he is not an unfamiliar figure. The club also made history with the hiring.

An Ontario judge has dismissed a challenge to force the Cleveland Indians to change their name and logo. Cleveland is playing the Toronto Blue Jays in Major League Baseball's American League Championship Series.

Former Buffalo Bisons manager Eric Wedge has been hired by the Toronto Blue Jays as the team's Player Development Advisor.

Baseball fans in Toronto finally have something to celebrate. The Blue Jays are in the playoffs after a drought of more than 20 years, after having clinched first place in the American League East and fans are ecstatic.

Young talent from the Toronto Blue Jays organization will entertain baseball fans at Buffalo's Coca Cola Field starting next season. 

The Blue Jays, who are considered to have one of the strongest collections of prospects in all of baseball, are now officially the parent club of the Buffalo Bisons.   The Bisons will serve as the AAA farm team for the Jays for at least the next two seasons, ending a four-year relationship with the New York Mets.

Toronto players over the past four years had a much farther trek, with their AAA affiliate located in Las Vegas. 

Bisons align with Toronto Blue Jays

Sep 18, 2012

The Buffalo Bisons today officially announced their new affiliation arrangement with the Toronto Blue Jays.  The teams have agreed to a two-year player development contract, beginning with the 2013 season. 

The Herd has served as the AAA farm team for the New York Mets for the last four years.  Toronto's farm team was in Las Vegas, which is the Mets' new affiliate.

Team owner Bob Rich, Jr. says the partnership makes sense regionally and allows the Bisons to benefit from a wealth of talent in the Toronto development system, which is considered among the best in baseball.
