The Buck Stops Here

What an amazing speech by an amazing man, today in Cooperstown. The 94-year-old Negro Leagues legend Buck O'Neil, who was inexplicably left out of this year's 17-person Negro Leagues Hall of Fame class, nonetheless gave the opening remarks at the ceremony- looking great for his age- and delivered a moving and eloquent speech. It can be heard in its entirety on the Hall of Fame website.

And it's still hard to believe that it's been five years since I sat on that same lawn and saw Kirby Puckett go into the Hall. It's even harder to believe that he's gone.
