Buffalo Bison

International League
The Bisons continued to improve in 1990 on the field and into the continued construction of the ballpark as they entered the new decade with a record of 84-62. Coca Cola Field (now known as Pilot Field) was upgraded to 5000 square feet of standing room only area as well as an additional 1400 new bleacher seats. Steve Carter returned to the team and batted .303 with 19 2B, a Coca-Cola Field record 12 3B and 8 HR. The Pirates also featured their first future superstar in Moises Alou who at 23 years old batted .264 with 5 2B, 6 3B and 5 HR. Moises would go on to play in 6 All-Star games, having career years in 1998 when he slammed 38 HR with 124 RBI and batted .312 for the Astros followed by a 30 HR, .355 season in 2000. When he joined the Cubs in 2004 at the age of 37 he had his best offensive season batting .293 with 39 HR and 106 RBI. He finished his MLB career in 2007 with the New York Mets at age 40, and though hampered by an injury plagued season ,he still hit .341 with 13 HR. John Cangelosi also stopped by Buffalo for 89 At Bats to hit .348 which obviously wasn’t enough to qualify for the batting title. Mark Ryal who had a total of 371 At Bats however... was good enough to qualify and has the best hitting season so far of any Buffalo Bison at the new stadium, as he hit .334 with 34 2B and 9 HR.
