Interestingly enough, Auburn said goodbye the same year to Falcon Parků a sister stadium to Batavia with the same amount of baseball history. A new ballpark (almost a clone) was built in its footprint just like this one. The Batavia Clippers came into this stadium with 3 NY-Penn League Championships under their belt dating back to when the park first opened in 1939. Not the greatest ratio, but the team was currently enjoying some serious stability. When Dwyer Stadium II debuted, it was in the middle of a very loyal 19 year PDC with the Philadelphia Phillies. The team was not in any way scrambling to find an affiliate like its predecessor had so often done. The debut of the new ballpark in 1996 was part of many other changes however to come to this franchise. By 1998 the team would debut a new name as well.
