Luckily baseball continued to be a very successful sport and took over as the main sport of Buffalo once again. This facility... Civic Stadium (which had expanded to 35,000 from 33,000) sat quietly as Offerman Stadium thrived. The Bisons baseball team had joined up with the Detroit Tigers as their Triple-A franchise and were producing future Major League All-Stars and Hall of Famers. Like the Bills... they wouldn't have many Championship Trophies to show for it, but they would be very successful showcasing their future talent in the Home Run haven of Offerman Stadium. Little did they know that this stadium was soon to be their future home.
