The Scouting Report
When the Bisons open their 2013 season at home on Thursday, April 4, they'll begin a new era as the Triple-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays—an organization whose minor-league system was ranked third-best in all of baseball prior to 2012. Throughout the month of April, the Bisons will rumble into Coca-Cola Field a total of 13 times, which includes a four-game set with the International League's defending champions, the Pawtucket Red Sox. The team also has unveiled a new look for 2013, which, much like blasting the Gettysburg Address through an iPod, simultaneously honors both the past and the future.
Despite spending most of their 125-plus-year history as a minor-league organization, the Bisons began play as a major-league club from 1879–85. All told, nearly 3,000 players and managers have donned the Bisons uniform, including 20 who have been immortalized in the National Baseball Hall of Fame. Currently, the Bisons compete every summer for an International League title, as well as the Thruway Cup—a regional- and bragging rights–based trophy chased by the Bisons, the Rochester Red Wings, and the Syracuse Chiefs. The Bisons have done half of their competing since 1988 at Coca-Cola Field, which boasts the largest video board in the minors and an infield kept moist by hoses that spray water and not soda as the field’s name would suggest.
