Bisons Opening Day in Buffalo is on Wednesday, April 11 as the Herd hosts the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Yankees at Coca-Cola Field (2:05 p.m.). This is the Bisons 25th season at Coca-Cola Field with plans for a year-long celebration to be revealed on Opening Day.

Here is what you need to know before you head out to the ballpark.

TICKETS: You can buy your tickets online and avoid the lines at the Coca-Cola Field Box Office by printing them out at home. You can also call THE-HERD at (716) 843-4373 or visit the Box Office, Monday-Friday (9am-5pm).

BEFORE THE FIRST PITCH: Gates to Coca-Cola Field will open at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, but you can stop by the Bisons Box Office as early as 9:00 a.m. If you have tickets waiting for you, might be a good idea to stop down early to avoid lines at the Will Call window.

Pre-Game ceremonies will start at about 1:30 p.m. As is tradition, each member of the 2012 Bisons team will be introduced to the line, including new manager Wally Backman.
