Buffalo Bisons (INT'L)
The 1959 pennant was Buffalo's ninth (and last) in the league. The Bisons played at Offerman Stadium tempting for left-handed hitters because the right field fence was a mere 297 feet from home plate. The first International League night game was played in Buffalo on July 3 1930. In 1964 #17 was worn by none other than the legendary "Marvelous Marv" Throneberry so-named by the Amazin' Mets manager Casey Stengel because of Marv's dubious skills as a fielder.
