The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball 1857-2020 is an update and revision of Joseph Overfield’s 1985 classic, The 100 Seasons of Buffalo Baseball. It is a 400-page, richly illustrated, hard-cover journey through the fascinating story of baseball in the Queen City from the organization of the first amateur clubs in the 1850s and the founding of the city’s first professional team−the Bisons− in 1877 to the return of major-league baseball to the city in 2020, when the Toronto Blue Jays made Buffalo’s downtown ballpark its home field. Each book contains an update of the unique 2021 season in Buffalo when the Toronto Blue Jays played MLB games in front of fans before the Bisons returned home to win its division. HOF Baseball Columnist Mike Harrington authored the summary. It is a story of good times and bad, heroes and rogues, and triumphs and disappointments, all told against the backdrop of the profound changes in American society and the fortunes of Buffalo the city. “I admire the loving care and meticulous research that went into The Seasons of Buffalo Baseballl. To say that Buffalo has a rich baseball history is to deal in understatement. The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball is a lively and entertaining chronicle of a town’s love affair with our National Game.”---Emmy Award Winning Broadcaster, Bob Costas “The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball in a rare marvel−a book born of local devotion that commands national attention. It is a definitive work on Buffalo’s long, compelling history in baseball.”--- John Thorn, Official Historian of Major League Baseball
