By the end of the park’s existence, the club was a Toronto Blue Jays franchise. They had originally planned to shut the place down after 1995, but the new Onondaga County Stadium rising across the street was not completed that winter due to severe weather, and they coaxed one additional season out of Big Mac.
Finally, in 1997, the Chiefs (rechristened the SkyChiefs because of alleged complaints from the nearby Onondaga Nation, whose reservation is about five miles south of the park) relocated to their new park, which now sported the name of a local supermarket chain.
