Russell J Salvatore Foundation Donation to The Buffalo & Erie County Public Library

Forty copies of the recently released book The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball 1857-2020 are being donated to the Buffalo & Erie County Public Libraries by the Russell J. Salvatore Foundation.

The book, edited by James H. Overfield, is an update and revision of the out-of-print 1985 baseball history The 100 Seasons of Buffalo Baseball by Overfield’s late father, Buffalo Bisons historian Joseph M. Overfield. The new edition, published locally by Billoni Associates Publishing of Grand Island, NY, highlights the stories, statistics and photographs of hundreds of players, owners, managers and legends from Buffalo’s lengthy baseball history — from the pre-Civil War baseball clubs, Offermann and War Memorial stadiums and the 1980s baseball revival with the opening of downtown’s Pilot Field (now Sahlen Field) to the present day.
