Jesus Feliciano returned in 2010 to light up the ballpark, hitting .385 throughout most of the season until he was called up to the Majors. When he returned to Buffalo, it was amidst a terrible slump. He would still however finish the year with a .339 batting average in 336 At Bats, which was just shy of the  number of plate appearances to take over the Coca-Cola Field all time batting title held by Mark Ryal (.334). Chris Carter’s .336 batting average with 9 2B and 6 HR in only 113 At Bats also prompted his early season call-up to the Majors. Lucas Duda would lead the team in power slamming 23 2B and 17 HR while batting .314 in only 264 At Bats… which easily would have been a 30 HR season had he gotten a full 500 At Bats. Between Buffalo, Binghamton and the Mets, he would produce 27 HR for the year. There was however, nobody more exciting than Mike Hessman who had been leading the league in just about everything, when after 64 games… Hessman had amassed 20 2B, 18 HR and 58 RBI (.274). Hessman was looking at a possible 40 HR season before a pitch hit his hand while still holding the bat, breaking his hand and fracturing the bones around it. When he fully recovered, the Mets promoted him to the Majors. Russ Adams (28 2B, 16 HR, .264), Mike Jacobs (23 2B, 15 HR, .260), Valentino Pascucci (17 HR, .258) and Justin Turner (30 2B, 12 HR, .316) also contributed to the Bisons. The pitching got a little better as well. Dillon Gee (13-8, 4.96) and Pat Misch (11-4, 3.23) brought two pitchers with double-digits in wins to the team. R.A. Dickey (4-2, 2.23) pitched a great knuckleball before becoming one of the core starters for the Mets.
