Buffalo Baseball Park was a stadium in Buffalo, New York. It was primarily used for baseball and was the home of Buffalo Bisons of the International League. The ballpark opened in 1889. It was located on the block bounded by East Ferry Street, Masten Avenue, Woodlawn Avenue and Michigan Avenue.

History[edit | edit source]

After the lease ran out on Olympic Park after the conclusion of the 1888 season, a new park was built on East Ferry and Michigan Avenue[1][2]. It was a wooden structure which opened for professional baseball in 1889, serving the high-minor league club's needs for well over three decades.

Buffalo Public Schools #192 Buffalo Visual and Performing Arts Sch‎ool now occupies the site today. In the spring of 2012, a historical plaque will be dedicated at the site in remembrance of over 71 years of baseball played on the grounds. Local Buffalo sports historian John Boutet spearheaded the project and raised the funds through the facebook group Buffalo Sports Museum, the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame and the Buffalo Bisons.
