    On September 12, 2015, the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation, at its annual Alumni Gala Dinner, honored the players from the only teams to win Major League championships for Buffalo: the 1964 and 1965 Buffalo Bills.  In attendance were Stew Barber, George Flint, Mike Stratton, Ron McDole, Ed Rutkowski, Al Bemiller, Harry Jacobs, Billy Shaw, Booker Edgerson, Glenn Bass, Willie Ross, Daryle Lamonica, Butch Bird, Paul Maguire, Charlie Ferguson, Wray Carlton, Bobby Smith and long-time trainer Eddie Abramoski.  Also attending were family members of deceased Bills Tom Day, Ernie Warlick, Jack Kemp and Cookie Gilchrist, and head coach Lou Saban.
