Buffalo, NY (WBEN) The International League today announced that Buffalo Bisons General Manager Mike Buczkowski has been elected as the 2019 Dave Rosenfield “Executive of the Year.”

The award, voted on by the general managers and club officials from the 14 teams in the International League, will be officially presented to Buczkowski at this year’s Baseball Winter Meetings in December.

“The 2019 season was a special one in Buffalo for a number of reasons including a new naming rights deal for the ballpark and new records in both sponsorship and group ticket sales and these successes are a testament to Mike’s vision,” said Randy Mobley, President, International League.  “Mike continues to be a valued, highly respected leader in the International League boardroom and I am thrilled that his colleagues have honored him with this well-deserved recognition.”

“Mike’s talent was apparent when he started for us thirty years ago as a PR assistant and has only grown over time,” said Mindy Rich, President, Rich Entertainment Group. “It’s so satisfying to see him receive this well-deserved recognition from his colleagues.”

“Bucz is a true ‘baseball guy’ with a passion for the hospitality side of the game and the art of customer service, as well. Bison players and fans alike have come to realize that, over the 30 years that he has been a part of our team. We are a far better club because of his leadership.”

Buczkowski just completed his 26th season as the Buffalo Bisons general manager, the longest tenure of any GM in the 135-year history of the franchise.
