Sahlen Field is a baseball park in Buffalo, New York. Originally known as Pilot Field, the venue has since been named Downtown Ballpark, North AmeriCare Park, Dunn Tire Park, and Coca-Cola Field. Home to the Buffalo Bisons of the Triple-A East, it opened on April 14, 1988 and can seat up to 16,600 people, making it the highest-capacity Triple-A ballpark in the United States. It replaced the Bisons' former home, War Memorial Stadium, where the team played from 1979 to 1987.Sahlen Field is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
The stadium was the first retro-classic ballpark built in the world, and was designed with plans for Major League Baseball (MLB) expansion. Buffalo had not had an MLB team since the Buffalo Blues played for the Federal League in 1915. However, Bisons owner Robert E. Rich Jr. was unsuccessful in his efforts to bring an MLB franchise to the stadium between 1988 and 1994.
Sahlen Field was previously home to the Buffalo Nighthawks (LPBL) in 1998, the Empire State Yankees (IL) in 2012, and the Toronto Blue Jays (MLB) in 2020.
Additionally, the facility has been the site of numerous concerts and professional wrestling events.
Sahlen Field reviews
Great sport complex for Minor League baseball. Good food, great fun. Typical baseball stadium that also has other events. Concerts, food tasting. Summer time fun spot. more »
Good location from which you can see the waterfront. The team is not good but the stadium has a historic feel with a modern twist. It is downtown and there is adequate parking. Inexpensive tickets... more »
Home of the San Francisco Giants. The rivalry team to the Los Angeles Dodgers. Awesome ball park! Great weather, awesome sceneries, good food, and home to one of my favorite bands.. Metallica.
Watched part of the first Blue Jays home game in Buffalo from beyond the left field fence and a little from the right field parking garage. Stadium seems nice and the experience was unique!
