BUFFALO NY - For twenty six years now, the Buffalo Bisons have help bring spring to downtown. This year is no different.
The Bisons opened their 2013 baseball season at Coca-Cola Field on Thursday afternoon against the Rochester Red Wings.
This is the first season for the Bisons as the Toronto Blue Jays AAA affiliate in the International League.
On a morning that saw brilliant sunshine, there was a flurry of activity at the ballpark to be ready for the first pitch.
Channel Two Photojournalist Dooley O'Rourke was there for the finishing touches. Watch his story here.
For the record, the Bisons won the game 12 - 7
