More fun added to AAA All Star Event

Filed under: Sports

As if there wasn’t already enough to see and do next week when the AAA All Star Game and Home Run Derby come to Coca Cola Field, the Bisons have just announced that fans attending the Monday Home Run Derby will have the chance at snagging some great prizes, as a target hunt has been added to the event.

Here’s how it will work – the best sluggers from the International League and the Pacific Coast League will be aiming at 32 separate and distinct targets or banners, some placed in the outfield and others beyond the home run run fence. Existing signage will also figure into this part of the event. Players will be aiming for the targets which will represent a great prize for one lucky fan, or a section in the stadium, or perhaps all fans in attendance. The grand prize will be a two year lease for a 2012 Lincoln MKZ, which will be awarded if a player hits the center field sign of the prize’s sponsor, Towne Automotive.

Tickets continue to go out the window at a good clip, with less than 4000 tickets remaining for the All Star Game on Wednesday July 11, and less than 5000 tickets remaining for the Home Run Derby on July 9. Fans can still receive a discount for purchasing tickets to both events, and a very limited number of $99 four packs are available in the baseline sections, which include 4 hot dogs and 4 soda pops.

The last AAA All Star Game which took place in Buffalo happened way back in 1988, and fans will want to be part of this unique event which we might not see again in these parts for a long long time.
