Buffalo Bisons Tickets
Playing in the international league, Buffalo Bisons
play as the Triple A affiliates of the New York Mets. The Team originally came into existence in 1979, and presently they play their home games at the Coca Cola Field. The history of the franchise, and all the other franchises by the same name, is rooted back to the original Buffalo Bisons that remained active from 1879 to 1885 as the member of the National League. The team started off as a major league franchise, but in 1886 they went into minor league baseball and joined International League subsequently. Bisons had a shot at becoming a major league team once again when they joined Western League in 1899. But the following year, Western League decided to change its name from Western League to American League. But in favor of Boston Americans, the league bumped the Buffalo Bisons as soon as the 1901 season kicked off. However, Bisons made their comeback to the minors also in the same year.

After failing to do well in Winnipeg as well, the team later moved to Hampton, Virginia until finally being suspended following the 1973 season.
