BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — There's always a Buffalo connection, and that was certainly evident with the Los Angeles Dodgers winning the World Series, Tuesday night.
Three former Buffalo Bisons helped the Dodgers win the World Series for the first time since 1988.
Third baseman Justin Turner, manager Dave Roberts, and bullpen coach Josh Bard all played for the Bisons.
Turner played 90 games for the Bisons between 2010 and 2012, hitting 11 home runs and 37 RBI.
Roberts, who began his professional career with the defunct Jamestown Jammers, played for the Bisons from 1998 to 2001 hitting 13 home runs and 117 RBI in 276 games, and was elected to the Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame in 2013.
Bard, who was born not too far away from Buffalo in Ithaca, played 160 games with the Bisons from 2001 to 2004 hitting 15 home runs and 92 RBI.
