War Memorial Stadium, Remembering the Ol' Rockpile, 1937-1987 Jefferson, Best & Dodge Streets, Buffalo NY

With the Bisons 2016 home season opener this week at C.C. Field, it seems appropriate to bring back the memories of where we came from as local baseball fans.  

It doesn't seem that long ago that we attended games at War Memorial Stadium, the Ol' Rockpile as we affectionately came to know it. I loved that stadium for baseball. The pictures contained in this photo gallery are from in and around WMS in late 1987. Start here and continue in the Buffalo History Gazette FB page Album: War Memorial Stadium, Remembering the Ol' Rockpile. They are from among the last games played there in the 1987 season. So enjoy this little trip into history, and please feel free to leave comments and your memories of the Rockpile. Who knows, you may even find yourself in the crowd! Enjoy. Go Bisons!
