Bisons, Toronto ink two-year extension


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Year one of the Bisons/Blue Jays partnership went well enough that the two sides decided to tack on another two years to their agreement.

Buffalo signed a two-year extension with Toronto Thursday night, keeping the affiliation going through the 2016 season.

“We’ve seen a tremendous response from fans, both longtime followers and new supporters, since affiliating with the Blue Jays,” said Bob Rich, owner of the Buffalo Bisons, in a press release. “We’ve found a great teammate in the Blue Jays and every element of our business is better with the strong commitment of our major league partner.”

The Bisons have been in playoff contention throughout the season during the first year of their affiliation with the Blue Jays. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
