BUFFALO – Large amounts of snow and ice at Coca-Cola Field have forced the cancellation of the Bisons games Tuesday and Wednesday.
Team officials said that the field is unsafe to play on and that the snow and ice will not melt in time for ground crews to clear the playing surface.
Tonight’s game will be made up on Tuesday, July 24 when the Bisons visit Louisville Slugger Field to face the Bats (game time to be announced).
The two games scheduled for tomorrow, however, will not be made up do to the presence of two other doubleheaders later that week when the Bisons visit the Indianapolis Indians.
By International League rules, teams cannot play more than three doubleheaders in any seven-day window.
With these cancelations, the Bisons will not play the Louisville Bats at home at any point this season.
The last time the Bisons failed to play an opponent at Coca-Cola Field because of a weather was 2007, when all four scheduled games against the Richmond Braves were postponed (April 5-8, 2007).
