March 2, 2015 –Former Buffalo Bisons infielder TRENT DURRINGTON was inducted into the Australian Baseball Hall of Fame over the weekend. Australian Baseball also honored Bisons pitcher LIAM HENDRIKS as their New Era Cap ‘Male Player of the Year.”

Durrington spent the 2007 season with the Bisons, his final professional season in America. In 73 games, the versatile fielder hit .226 (44-195) with five doubles, two triples, a home run and 20 RBI. He also had 15 stolen bases in 20 attempts. He may be best known by Bisons fans as the winning pitcher in the Herd’s 15-14 victory over Pawtucket on May 5, 2007 (suspended game from April 23) in which Buffalo scored nine runs in the bottom of the ninth inning for the win.

Durrington also played in 140 Major League games over five seasons between 1999-2005 with Anaheim and Milwaukee. He hit .232 with a pair of home runs and four RBI in a career-high 53 games with the Brewers in 2004.

Hendriks was the International League’s best pitcher in 2014 before being traded to the Kansas City Royals in late July. The righty was the winning pitcher and Most Valuable Player of the 2014 Triple-A All-Star Game while representing Buffalo. In 18 games and 16 starts with the Bisons, Hendriks was 8-1 with a league best 2.33 ERA. He walked just seven batters while collecting a Bisons’ team-high 91 strikeouts in 108.1 innings of work. Hendriks also leads the International League with a 0.91 WHIP and topped all Bisons pitchers with nine quality starts.
