The name changed several times, becoming the Buffaloes in 1896, and then the Buffs in 1959. The Houston Sports Association bought the team in 1961 when the Houston Colt. 45s were created. The Buffs became Houston's top minor league team, moving to Oklahoma City in 1962 when the Colts began play in the National League.
