Buffalo Bisons (PL)

The Buffalo Bisons of 1890 were a member of the short-lived Players' League. This baseball team was managed by Jack Rowe and Jay Faatz, and they finished eighth (last) with a record of 36-96 while playing their home games at Olympic Park. Hall of Famer Connie Mack was a part-owner of the franchise, having invested his life savings of $500 in the team, none of which he ever recouped.

In addition to owning part of the team, Mack also played catcher, batting .266 in 123 games with the league. Famed deaf player Dummy Hoy played for the 1890 Bisons, as did two players who appeared in the previous NL incarnation of the Bisons, Jack Rowe and Deacon White.

The PL Bisons were an outlaw franchise that played concurrently with the minor league Buffalo Bisons and apparently used the stock Bisons name without the permission of the legitimate team; the legitimate Bisons played at Buffalo Baseball Park across town. The current Bisons franchise does not recognize the PL Bisons as part of their history.
