Bisons Top 25 Part II: Heat turned up in the booth?

Part two of our Bisons Top 25 lists is in today's sports section, listing 25 bizarre moments at Coca-Cola Field. One of them is the night in 1991 when legendary Indianapolis radio voice Howard Kellman, who has been coming to Buffalo since 1985, was startled on the air by the work of Buster Bison and Herd voice Pete Weber and thought he had a bit of a fire in his booth.

Weber, who has voluminious audio archives, passed this one along this morning to me with the commentary from Kellman on that night.

Elsewhere in Bisonland:

Reigning IL Pitcher of the Week Collin McHugh, who threw seven shutout innings Saturday in Fenway Park, makes his major-league debut this afternoon at 1:10 for the Mets against Colorado in Citi FIeld.

What happened this year to Triple-A Home Run Derby hero Valentino Pascucci? Amy Moritz has the answer in today's Bisons report, which includes last night's 2-1, 12-inning loss to Scranton/Wilkes-Barre that ended late enough to not make some of today's print editions.
