The KeyBank Independence Eve Celebration features the best that America has to offer. Our national pastime played out between two great rivals. Then after the game, sit back and enjoy a great post game concert from the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. Of course, no KeyBank Independence Eve concert would be complete without several numbers to honor our brave servicemen and servicewomen. After a feast for the ears, get your eyes ready to be amazed.

He taught you how to throw a baseball, made sure your back elbow was up in the batter's box and the perfect way to break in your new glove.

The Bison's are home for Father's Day -Sunday, June 17- with a 1:05 p.m. game against the Rochester Red Wings, presented by AXA Advisors. We've got great baseball action under the sun as the Bison's battle their closest rivals.
