I can not believe that O'Neill has been left out again. Mike Bauman is a national columnist for MLB.com and speaks for most of us:
"It is difficult to imagine how this process could be held without electing Buck O'Neil to the Hall of Fame. Even those of us who cannot claim comprehensive historical knowledge in this area are aware of his exploits and his importance. In more recent years, O'Neil has come to be a truly national figure, a symbol of an entire era when great American baseball was not played only in the Major Leagues. His omission is entirely regrettable, not to mention, for many of us, completely inexplicable."
Buck O'Neill and Tommy Lasorda are baseball's current goodwill ambassadors. It is beyond belief that O'Neill is not a member of the HOF!
P.S. Cuban greats Cristobal Torriente and Jose Mendez are among the candidates for special induction.
