|Buff Stadium was home to the Houston Buffaloes minor league team from 1928 to 1961. The ballpark was torn down in 1963, but fortunately a reminder still exists. On the same plot of land where the ballpark was situated, the Finger Furniture store now stands. In the basement the Houston Sports Hall of Fame features the last home plate used at Buff Stadium in the exact spot where it was located. The furniture store (and thus the sport museum) were closed for a while in 2009, opened back up in 2010, and then closed again in 2012. There were plans to move the home plate to one of the other Finger Furniture locations, but those also closed in 2014. So as of now, the exact whereabouts of the home plate is unknown.
