Team Notes

Welcome to the official Homepage of The Nickel City Benchmark of the Great American Baseball League [GABL]. The team derives it's name from it's hometown of Buffalo , New York , USA. The nickel city is a municiple moniker derived from the old buffalo head nickels. The team nickname , Benchmark , is in tribute to Johnny Bench. Johnny was a hall of fame bound catcher for the Cincinnatti Reds in the days of the Big Red Machine , but before that he was a Buffalo Bison in his minor league days. Bench is the only member of Baseball's All-Century team to have played in Buffalo , although he is not the only Hall of Famer to thrill Buffalo sports fans. Throughout the nickel city's 120+ years of baseball , including being an original National League city ,scores of future Hall members played here. The team colors are Red , again in honor of Bench , and Blue with white trim.
