Bisons Hot Stove to feature Terry Collins

The Bisons will host their annual Winter Hot Stove Luncheon Jan. 21 at the Adam's Mark and the featured speaker will be Buffalo Baseball Hall of Famer/newly hired New York Mets manager Terry Collins.

Collins, 61, was hired by the Mets to replace Jerry Manuel on Nov. 22 after serving last year as the team's minor-league field coordinator.  He managed the Bisons from 1989-1991, posting a 246-186 record and leading the club to the 1991 American Association East Division title.

Bisons vice present/general manager Mike Buczkowski will also speak and will update fans on some changes planned for 2011 at Coca-Cola Field. The new playing surface was completed in November and fans driving by on Oak Street have noticed work beginning on a new scoreboard video component.

Tickets are $20 for a buffet lunch at noon followed by the program and can be purchased by calling the Bisons at 846-2011. Tables of eight are $160. Doors open at 11:30 a.m.  The Bisons are asking all fans to RSVP by Jan. 18.
