After holding out hope for a while the there would be Buffalo Bisons baseball this summer, fans may have to wait until the 2021 season for a return of baseball to Sahlen Field.
Finally, after back-and-forth negotiations stalled out, the MLB implemented a 60-game season that the players agreed to on June 24, and teams will begin reporting to training camp on Wednesday.
Unfortunately, the 2020 MiLB season could not be saved as teams needed to make some pay cuts during the pandemic, which included the release of several minor league players.
The Bisons finished with a 71-69 record and a third place finish in the IL North in 2019 - their best season in the International League since 2014. Buffalo has not been in the playoffs at the Triple-A level since 2005 when the team was still affiliated with the Cleveland Indians.
