Associated Press

The Buffalo Bisons passed the all-time minor league baseball record for tickets sold Friday night against the Omaha Royals in a game won by Omaha, 7-5.

A sellout crowd of 19,500 gave the Bisons a total of 1,061,319 tickets sold. The Louisville Redbirds set the old mark with 1,052,438 in 1983.

The Bisons have based their attendance figures on tickets sold, which is the guideline used by the American Assn., according to Randy Mobley, administrator of the triple-A league.
