Finally back home in … New Jersey? Bisons ready to start a season like no other | Baseball

If the border reopens and the Blue Jays get the green light from Ontario health officials to return home, the Bisons would be looking to return from New Jersey in a few days. If that never happens, the Blue Jays could stay in Buffalo all summer and the Bisons would move to New Jersey for the duration and therefore not return to Buffalo until April 2022.

Dressed in a Bisons hat and Trenton Thunder sweatshirt, new Buffalo manager Casey Candaele ponders a question during his video call with reporters on Monday.

Blue Jays GM: Buffalo schedule likely to arrive in next week

The Blue Jays have not officially announced their coming to Buffalo, so there have been no tickets on sale for any game.

However long they stay in Jersey, it will be a land of confusion. As part of the deal, players and coaches will wear Trenton Thunder gear at home and Bisons gear on the road. New herd manager Casey Candaele, a classic clubhouse during his days with the herd from 1995 to 1997, made his video call with reporters on Monday in a Bisons cap and Thunder sweatshirt.

“I have already named the team. Two names, the ‘Buffaton Bisder’ and the ‘Trenfalo Thunsons’. It’s a mix of the two teams,” Candaele said with his mischievous smile. “So I don’t know if this has happened before, a team played a season and they wore different uniforms in two different cities. So I think we’re making history. “

“It’s pretty interesting, but that’s just what we need to do right now. And that’s part of everything that’s going on.… At least we’re going to be playing baseball, which has been a long time. the players I know are excited. “

The uniform situation was the subject of clubhouse discussions on Monday. Toronto’s number one prospect Nate Pearson scheduled for Tuesday stepped back in horror from wearing the Thunder’s Yankees-style pants.
