History

Prior to moving to Binghamton for 1992, the franchise played in Williamsport, Pennsylvania from 1987 to 1991 as the Williamsport Bills. The team was an affiliate of the Cleveland Indians in 1987 an 1988, and was affiliated with the Seattle Mariners during the 1989 and 1990 seasons before being purchased by the New York Mets in 1991.

The Bills franchise was actually two separate franchises. After the 1988 season, the original owners moved the Bills to Hagerstown, Maryland, while the Eastern League franchise based in Pittsfield, Massachusetts moved back to Williamsport before the 1989 season. It was the latest in a long series of moves for the Pittsfield franchise, which was originally based in Williamsport in 1976 and later moved to Jersey City, New Jersey from 1977 through 1978 and then Buffalo, New York from 1979 through 1984.
