What a Day at the Yard
Even though the entire playing field was covered in snow there was a great crowd at Dunn Tire Park for the annual Family Day Open House. Dozens were waiting to get in at 11 a.m. and over 500 fans worked their way through to take advantage of all the goodies and entertainment while roaming behind the scenes at the ballpark. I would like to say a special “thank you” to everyone that stopped by our broadcast booth to say, “hello” and talk Bisons baseball.
The Bisons Home Opener is just 27 days away! Buffalo will host the Toledo Mud Hens on Friday, April 11 (6:05 p.m.) for a fridaynightbash!®. Individual game, season ticket and ticket packages are now available.
~ When we were done with the event I learned the Tribe made a few roster moves:
The Cleveland Indians optioned RHP Edward Mujica and C Wyatt Toregas to the Buffalo Bisons. The Tribe also reassigned RHP Rick Bauer, RHP JD Martin, RHP Jeff Stevens, C/INF Chris Gimenez, INF Jordan Brown, INF Beau Mills and OF Trevor Crowe to minor league camp.
Mujica, 23, has spent time with the Bisons during the 2006 and 2007 seasons. Last year, he led the Bisons with 14 saves and was 2-1 with a 5.01ERA in 34 games pitched. In 2006, Mujica was 3-1 with a 2.48ERA and five saves in 22 games.
Toregas, 25, spent the 2007 with the Double-A Akron Aeros and was the league’s top defensive catcher. He paced the Eastern League by throwing out 52% of would-be base stealers (32CS, 62ATT). Toregas hit .250 with six home runs and 39RBI in 86 games.
