The Bisons held their hot stove luncheon Friday at the Adam's Mark Hotel. The club revealed its new uniforms as part of its affiliation with the Toronto Blue Jays.
The new jerseys pay tribute to the past, with red lettering and blue numbers taken from the teams early years at the downtown ballpark. A 'hitting Buster' logo returns to the team's cap, while an alternate jersey ties in elements of the parent Blue Jays.
Former AL MVP George Bell and top young outfielder Anthony Gose were on hand, along with members of the Blue Jays and Bisons front offices.
"It was a fun process, to be able to change uniforms and go back to our roots in a way with the red, white and blue," said Bisons vice president and general manager Mike Buczkowski. "And then be able with our alternate jersey, to tie in with our partnership with the Blue Jays, with the American and Canadian flags and the Blue Jays number font. We're excited, we're excited that our fans finally get to see it and be able to see it on the field in 77 days."
