We will miss Buck O'Neil (1911-2006)




Like so many others, I got to know Buck O'Neil during the Ken Burns' baseball series.   Buck's comments were so great.   His memories of The Negro Leagues were precious.

Since '94, O'Neil became a wonderful baseball ambassador. He visited Dallas many times. I heard him on the radio a couple of times.


A few years ago, Buck died at 94.

We will miss his wonderful face and voice. What a great guy!

Buck was one of the great stars of
The Negro Leagues. Many of these guys played in Cuba. Also, many black Cubans played in that league.
