BUFFALO, N.Y. —  At Sahlen Field, life is like a box of Mystery Balls – you never know what you’re going to get! The Buffalo Bisons are putting on their popular Mystery Ball Night on Tuesday, August 27 at Sahlen Field, in partnership with Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, as a night of hope and support for patients, survivors and caregivers.

Come see your hometown team take on the Rochester Red Wings at the 7:05 p.m. game, all while taking part in the fun of this event and enjoying an inspirational evening honoring those who have and are battling cancer.

Over 500 baseballs have been collected over the last year, featuring autographs from some of the biggest celebrities in sports and music – Vladimir Guerrero, Jr., Jack Eichel, Josh Allen, Jimmy Eat World, Blink 182 and more. Each ball is gift-wrapped to conceal the identity of the signer. Fans in attendance on August 27 will have the option to purchase one baseball for a $25 donation and reveal the mystery behind their new autographed ball.

Five dollars from every presale game ticket purchased at the special online ticket hub by 11:59 p.m. on August 26 comes directly back to Roswell Park to help fund innovative cancer research and life-saving treatments. Mystery Ball purchases and basket raffle proceeds from the night will also support the center’s mission.

The night is also a celebration of survivorship and strength, with meaningful activities and moments throughout the game. Add your name, or those of a loved one, to our “Wall of Hope” and rally together as we support all those affected by cancer.

Hurry though – tickets that directly benefit Roswell Park are only available through presales, which can be purchased here.
