As the Bisons success continued on,
Offerman Stadium had reached its 37th year in existence. The stadium which was built out of concrete and steel was designed to give Buffalo a "permanent baseball park" as compared to the wooden ballpark which was located on the same spot at Michigan and Ferry known as "Olympic Park". Olympic Park however in all its incarnations lasted as a wooden ballpark for 36 years. Offerman Stadium made of its much stronger "concrete and steel" was now starting to fall apart and look its "37 years of age" and came to the end of its lifecycle at about the same time as the wooden ballpark did.
