Buck O'Neil: You Will Always be Remembered

November 11, 1911- October 6, 2006

"God's been good to me. They didn't think Buck was good enough to be in the Hall of Fame. That's the way they thought about it and that's the way it is, so we're going to live with that. Now, if I'm a Hall of Famer for you, that's all right with me. Just keep loving old Buck. Don't weep for Buck. No, man, be happy, be thankful."

With great respect I thank you... for your wisdom, your passion and your patience. You are one of America's great Americans.
