Reyes, Star Wars, Blue Jays are all big business at Herd box office

By Mike Harrington

With a certain sellout expected for tonight's Star Wars Night promotion, the Bisons are going to have their first non-July 3 full house at Coca-Cola Field since Aug. 31, 2006 -- when they drew 18,025 for a 13-inning Fan Appreciation Night game against Rochester.

(Reminder to tonight's ticket holders: Gates open at 5. Get to will call early. Have proper ID.)

The last sellout in the ballpark was the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 11, 2012 but the last sellout for an actual game was all the way back on July 3, 2007

Combined with Friday's crowd of 13,169, the Bisons will draw 31,194 for two days -- their most in a two-day span since getting 30,443 on Aug. 26-27, 2008. 

In their four years with the New York Mets, the closest the Herd got to 30,000 in two days was when it drew 28,808 on July 2-3, 2010
