Quick Facts: Rating: 3 baseballs
I never got to see a game at the old Dwyer Stadium. In my only attempt, in 1993, I drove all the way up from Charleston, W.Va., to catch a game only to get caught in a monsoon passing through Attica, just south of Batavia. That rainstorm was enough to cancel the game.

In 1996, I was rained out of yet another attempt, this time at the new Dwyer. However, I got to the park for the first time in 1997, on a clear, brisk July evening.

The renovation was necessary for the player areas, such as the dugouts and locker rooms, which had been far below standard. The pattern was Falcon Park in Auburn, which had been rebuilt the year before.

The franchise has been rumored to be on the way out for several years; it was operated by the Rochester Red Wings for a while. The club is currently abandoned and is operating for 2018 as a ward of the league.
