Eric Wedge, Greg Tubbs, Bob Miske elected to the Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame

The Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame announced last week that former Bisons manager Eric Wedge, former Bisons outfielder Greg Tubbs and long-time Buffalo-area scout Bob Miske have been elected to the Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame.
Wedge, Tubbs and Miske will be formally inducted during special Hall of Fame ceremonies before the Bisons 7:05 p.m. game on July 11 against the Durham Bulls.
Wedge managed for two seasons in Buffalo, leading the Bisons to the International League playoffs in both 2001 and 2002. His first Bisons club set a modern era record with 91 wins (91-51) and won an IL North Division title by 13.5 games. The 2001 Bisons were amazingly consistent, losing more than two games in a row just once during the span of a 142-game campaign. Wedge’s 2002 Bisons went 87-57 and qualified for the playoffs as the IL’s Wild Card team. After a first round sweep of division-winning Scranton/Wilkes-Barre, the Bisons fell in the 2002 Governors’ Cup finals to the Durham Bulls. In his two seasons, Wedge was 178-108 for a modern-era best .622 winning percentage. He was also the manager of the International League at the 2002 All-Star Game.
Tubbs played three years with the Bisons, 1991-1992 and 1994. In 364 games, the outfielder hit .283 (370-1,307) with 60 doubles, 19 triples, 12 home runs, 121 RBI and 67 stolen bases. He’s third in the modern era in total hits (370) and is one of only two Bisons players since 1985 to have 100-plus hits in three separate seasons.
An Amherst native, Miske is entering his 50th season as a pro scout, having worked for the Los Angeles Dodgers, the New York Yankees and the Seattle Mariners organizations. He is a member of the Mid-Atlantic Scouts Hall of Fame (2000), the Professional Baseball Scouts Hall of Fame (2010), the Western New York Baseball Hall of Fame (2000) and the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame (2004).
