It Official, Wally Backman is moving his way up the New York Mets' farm system after being named manager of the team's Triple-A affiliate in Buffalo.

At 52, the former major league infielder takes over the Buffalo Bisons. He replaces Tim Teufel, who was promoted to become the Mets' third-base coach this offseason.

Backman has nine seasons of managerial experience and two with the Mets organization. He broke in as a manager in 2001 with the Chicago White Sox Class A affiliate Winston-Salem. Backman has a 534-488 career record and has won two league titles as a manager.

Backman spent 14 seasons in the majors, including his first nine with the Mets from 1980-88, and was a member of New York's 1986 World Series championship team.
