International League
(Triple-A)
The Bisons would take on Oklahoma City’s 89ers in the playoffs, a team which was way behind the Bisons in talent. The 89ers' winning percentage was only .514 compared to the Bisons’ .604. They did however have one trick up their sleeve… Steve Balboni who had hit 26 2B, 30 HR and 104 RBI. Still it should be easier than that Denver city from last season which ruined the team in more ways than one. Needless to say it was a shock when Oklahoma City ran over the Bisons in the finals sweeping the series 4 games to 0. Another stormy season in the books… and stormy it was as the Bisons had to cancel 6 home games due to rough weather. Despite that, Coca-Cola Field saw 1,134,000 come though the gates.. their 5th straight season with over 1 million fans drawn which was something to be more than proud of, considering only 1 team had ever broken 1 million fans in previous Minor League history and that was only for a single season. That amazing tally would continue into 1993 as the Bisons drew 1,079,000... their 6th consecutive season over 1 million, despite finishing 2 games under .500. The 1993 team didn’t have the great hitting lineup 1-8, of the previous season though Russ Mormon almost made up for that fact all by himself. Mormon batted .320 with 34 2Bs and a record 22 HR to take the HR title away from Brian Dorsett. Scott Bullett hit .287 with 28 SB and Ray Smith went 15-11 tying the all time Wins mark with Dave Johnson. In the bullpen Tony Menendez went 4-5-24 Sv, 2.42 to take the all time Bisons save record at Coca-Cola Field.
