The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball:


During Major League Baseball’s World Series in late October, Billoni Associates Publishing will release The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball 1857-2020, an updated and revised edition of Joseph M. Overfield’s 100 Seasons of Buffalo Baseball, originally published in 1985.


We are pleased to announce that a portion of the proceeds from sales of The Seasons of Buffalo Baseball Book will go to establishing the Joseph M. Overfield Memorial Baseball, Softball, and Mentoring Program–a summer sports league and year-round mentoring project we are creating in partnership with Omega Mentoring and the Willie “Hutch” Jones Educational and Sports Program.

The program will operate at the Johnnie B. Wiley Amateur Athletic Sports Pavilion (the former War Memorial Stadium) with a mission of mentoring and educating Buffalo’s youth about life skills through the fun of learning to play baseball and softball.


To help increase the proceeds that we will be able to donate, we are reaching out to WNY community-minded individuals and businesses, like you and yours, to become supporters and help us defray some of our publishing costs.   

Please take a few minutes and give it read. Then, if you are so inclined, fill out the sponsor page and join us in making a true difference in the lives of kids throughout our community.


Thank you for your time and consideration of this project! Look forward to welcoming you to The Joseph M. Overfield Memorial Baseball, Softball, and Mentoring Program

Best personal regards,

Mike Billoni
