The view from behind home plate at Sahlen Field.

The view from down the first base line. There's a large net behind the fence to prevent balls from traveling into the nearby street.

The view from down the third base line. There's a small outfield pavilion, and the picnic area allows fans to watch the game through the outfield fence.

The center field scoreboard, and Interstate 190 running behind the outfield fence.

Retired numbers and sharp corners line the outfield wall.

The outfield dimensions are encircled in the outline of a bison.

The outfield pavilion causes the wall to angle inward just after the foul pole, creating a unique angle in the right field corner.

The grandstand at Sahlen Field. The park is huge by minor league standards, as it was built when MLB was expanding in the late 80's and early 90's and was built to be expanded if Buffalo landed a Major League team.
