In 2019, Brian Dorsett became the 101st member of the Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame. A member of the Bisons for three seasons (1987, 1991-92), the hard-hitting catcher became the first modern era Bisons hitter to reach 100 RBI in a single season in 1992. He had 142 hits and 56 extra-base hits to lead the '92 Herd to an American Association Eastern Division Title.
The Buffalo Baseball Hall of fame represents such persons who have made a significant contribution to Buffalo professional baseball, or such Western New Yorkers, who have made a meaningful contribution to professional baseball generally. The Buffalo Baseball Hall of Fame was established in 1985 in conjunction with Buffalo Baseball's 100th anniversary. Each year the Hall of Fame Committee nominates names for suggested induction onto a preliminary ballot. Finalists are selected by a secret ballot, where a three-quarters vote of the committee is required for induction.
