Designed by HOK, this downtown stadium, was built
with an eye toward Major League Baseball expansion that once Buffalo
had hoped to secure a franchise. This stadium replaced the nearby
decaying War Memorial
. The 46 million dollar Pilot Field, sponsored by Pilot
Air Freight, was renamed North AmeriCare Park, less than three months
into its inaugural season when the naming rights were sold to the
regional HMO. Dunn Tire, a regional tire retailer, acquired the
naming rights in 1999. For 2009 season Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of
Buffalo signed up for the naming rights in a ten-year deal.
