This year, a new chapter will be written in local sports history marking the Buffalo Bisons affiliation with the Toronto Blue Jays. WNED-TV will be taking a special look inside this binational partnership in “A New Season for the Bisons and Blue Jays” airing Sunday, May 26 at 10:30 p.m. The program will be rebroadcast on Wednesday, May 29 at 8 p.m. and Friday, May 31 at 1 a.m.
Last fall, the teams signed a two-year contract making the Bisons the Triple-A farm team of the Blue Jays. The closeness of the two cities creates new opportunities for both teams and baseball fans in this binational region.
This half-hour, WNED-TV production explores the new affiliation, how it will impact both teams and what fans can expect in the future. Viewers will watch in-depth interviews with key Bisons and Blue Jays officials and scenes shot at Coca-Cola Field and the Rogers Centre.
Sponsorship for "A New Season for the Bisons and Blue Jays" was provided by Rich Products, The Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Buffalo and D'Youville College.
