Buck O’Neil

I was very sorry to hear about Buck O’Neil’s passing Friday night. The man was a true ambassador of the game. I’m disappointed he didn’t live to see the day where his name would join those in the Baseball Hall of Fame.  I could not imagine the world through his eyes, what he saw and who he played with and the stories.  Buck seemed to have lived a very full life. I think the baseball community should be very grateful to have had such a person in the game. I hope Major League Baseball honors his memory with a moment of silence before tomorrow’s games.
