It's Aud Replica Night at Bisons game

Get in line early if you're looking for the promotional item at tonight's Bisons-Pawtucket game. The first 4,000 fans through the Swan Street gate will receive a replica of the late, great Memorial Auditorium as part of the team's annual Replica Night giveaway.

Offermann and War Memorial Stadium and Coca-Cola Field have all been previous replica giveaways and now the team has moved to local landmarks like last year's Crystal Beach piece and the Aud.

The Aud replicas will only be given away at the Swan Street gate, one per person. The line in the past has stretched from the third-base gate all the way to the parking lot in right field, but history has shown patience works because it moves fast once the gates open.

The Bisons lost the opener of the four-game series Friday night, 4-2. Red-hot Pawtucket catcher Ryan Lavarnway homered, doubled and drove in three runs as he continues to make a splash among Boston prospect watches. In 35 games at Triple-A after being promoted from Double-A Portland, Lavarnway is batting .381 with 13 homers and 36 RBIs. Pretty sick numbers.
