Hang in there Buck!
Bad news over on ESPN.com today, where we find out that Negro Leagues legend Buck O'Neil is in the hospital. A few of us Big Picture contributors had the pleasure of seeing Buck speak a few years back when he was traveling with a touring exhibit from the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. He later got the ultimate shaft by falling one vote short of being elected to the Hall of Fame. He also recently played in a minor league all-star game at age 94. What a guy! Here's hoping Buck makes a speedy recovery.
