About the Book

The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball 1857-2020 is a collaborative effort that draws heavily from Joe Overfield’s book, The 100 Seasons of Buffalo Bisons Baseball, particularly in its year-by-year summaries of Bison seasons from 1857 to 1985.
This richly illustrated, 400-page book tells the story of Buffalo baseball from the 1850s, when the city’s first amateur ballclubs were formed, through to 2020, when major-league baseball returned to Buffalo as the Queen City hosted the Toronto Blue Jays’ home games at the city’s downtown ballpark.
This book is filled with 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 the city of Buffalo. The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball 1857-2020 is that rare marvel—a book born of local devotion that commands  national attention.
Many authors have contributed to the book including Brian M. Frank, an assistant editor on the project and  creator of the website The Herd Chronicles, Paul Langendorfer, author of Baseball in Buffalo, Budd Bailey and Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News, Sam Maiorana of Rochester’s Democrat and Chronicle and former Ch. 2 sportscaster Jonah Javad. The book honors the memory of Joe Overfield and is a tribute to the resilience of the City of Buffalo and the game that has been part of the city’s fabric for more than 160 years.
