According to WKBW-TV frontline healthcare workers will be eligible to receive two free tickets by showing their employer ID at the Sahlen Field Box Office.

Complimentary tickets must be claimed on game day.

The Bisons will also be honoring all healthcare workers who attend with special crowd recognitions.

Each game will feature a staff member of Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Erie County Medical Center, and Kaleida Health throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

“There are many individuals who have worked and sacrificed in an effort to get us out of this pandemic, but none are as vital as the passionate and dedicated frontline healthcare workers throughout the region and around the world,” said Anthony Sprague, General Manager of the Buffalo Bisons. “From the early, scary days of COVID-19 to the constant struggle to adapt and stay ahead of the virus, these are the heroes that are battling each day to comfort, to heal and to get our communities back on their feet. For that, we will forever be grateful.”

For the home games on August 14, the first 2,000 fans will receive a replica Buffalo Bisons jersey, and kids will be able to run the bases after the August 15th  game.

Game time both days at 1:05 p.m. against the Rochester Red Wings.

Tickets are $10 for every game and can be purchased here.
