1991 brought a power outage to the ballpark when not a single player reached the double-digit mark in HRs. Players Like Cecil Espy however did their best to help the team in other ways by batting .312 with 27 2B and 10 3B, tying Keith Miller (27 2B, 9 HR 68 RBI, .261) for the new Coca-Cola Field record in doubles (Benny Distefanoís 26 had held the mark). Greg Tubbs meanwhile hit 18 2B 11 HR and batted .273 and smacked in 84 RBI for the new Coca-Cola Field record in "ribbies". As if that wasnít enough of an accomplishment, he would also steal 34 bases, to take that lead as well. On the mound, the starting rotation was led by future Metsí Rick Reed who was stunning at 14-4, 2.15, coming within 1 point of tying Donald Taylorís 2.14 ERA record and 1 win of tying Dave Johnsonís 15 win record. It was good enough to earn the American Association version of the Cy Young Award. Steve Fireovid also put up a fine 9-8, 2.90 record. Mark Huismann meanwhile set the all time Coca-Cola Field saves record with 17 as he put up a 6-5-17 Sv, 3.16 record. Paul Miller also came in to start 10 games and was terrific at 5-2 with a 1.48 ERA. Posting a Coca-Cola Field best 89-75 record and with the team surging to an 81-62 (.566) record, the Bisons finally captured 1st place and were finally destined for the playoffs. With the team now solidly in 1st place, the Bisons broke their own all-time Minor League record with 1,240,951 fans through the gates.
