Though it was built in 1937, War Memorial Stadium remained solely as a football stadium until its later years. It wasnít until 1961... 25 years later after its post-construction debut, that the Rockpile hosted its first baseball game. Bisonsí baseball already had a full time home at Offerman Stadium which it had been playing in since 1924 and which they planned to play in for as long as the stadium would continue to stand. Unfortunately for the Bisons, the city government wasn't joining in with that program, and had other plans for the property.
