Ex-Bisons star Manto joins IL HOF

Jeff Manto

Former Buffalo Bisons slugger Jeff Manto is one of three players set to be inducted into the International League Hall of Fame this summer.

Manto, whose #30 jersey is one of only three retired Bisons numbers, will be honored during a series against Norfolk from August 11-14. The exact date will be announced once it is finalized.

He played four seasons in Buffalo and still ranks as the franchise’s modern-era leader with 79 homeruns and a .405 on-base percentage.

Manto is currently the Baltimore Orioles’ minor league hitting coordinator.
