After the Bills' departure, the stadium sat dormant from 1973 to 1978. The last tenant of War Memorial Stadium was the Buffalo Bisons , a franchise revived in 1979 before moving to a new downtown stadium, known as Pilot Field , in 1988 . The last major event at War Memorial Stadium was a Bisons game against the Nashville Sounds (the Sounds won, 7–5) on August 30, 1987; the game drew a capacity crowd of nearly 40,000 spectators.  Following after that was a slowpitch softball match between members of the Buffalo media; Doug Smith, a freelance newspaper columnist and WIVB-TV personality, led the winning team.
