Spring has sprung in Buffalo. Among the Spring sports starting within the coming weeks is baseball. Pitchers and Catchers reported to voluntary practice on Monday, March 22, and are hoping for a productive and safe season.
A long-time crucial part of the baseball season has been fundraising. The Bison began their salt fundraising last week and have placed an emphasis on safe delivery. All proceeds go directly back into the baseball program and help to fund purchasing of new equipment as well as maintaining the fields.
The fundraiser takes place as two separate competitions within the team. Players will be divided into teams with the main goal to sell the most salt. Teams that sell 150 bags combined will win a Bison Baseball t-shirt. Teams that sell 125 bags will win a $10 Dairy Queen gift card for each team member. Teams that sell 100 bags will win a $5 Dairy Queen gift card.
The fundraiser promotes healthy team competition, as well as community support. The fundraiser ends on April 23, 2021, and salt is expected to be delivered by May 22, 2021.
