Bisons manager Bobby Meacham has been named manager of the International League All-Stars for the Triple-A All-Star Game on July 10 in El Paso, Texas.
Meacham is the fourth Bisons manager to be the IL All-Star skipper. The others are Jeff Datz (1999), Eric Wedge (2002) and Marty Brown (2005). Meacham will lead a coaching staff of Rochester Red Wings pitching coach and former Bisons pitcher Stu Cliburn, Norfolk Tides coach Ramon Sambo and Toledo Mud Hens athletic trainer Chris McDonald.
Meacham has been a minor league manager for 13 seasons and is in his third season in Buffalo and seventh with the Toronto Blue Jays organization.
The Bisons are 32-35 this season, having won eight of their last 10 games, and return to Sahlen Field to open a stretch of seven games in six days — three against Indianapolis and four against Norfolk.
