“(Give it Up For) Buck O’Neil,” Bob Walkenhorst

Buck O’Neil is hailed as a legend, especially here in the Kansas City area.  Not only was O’Neil a great ballplayer, but his achievements off the field were arguably even greater. He not only worked to spread interest in the Negro leagues, he also played a huge part in the establishment of the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum in Kansas City.

    I could listen to Buck O’Niels voice every night before bed, not because it’s boring, but because it soothes like a lullaby.

    • I can’t figure out if O’Neil had grandkids — familial details seem to have been kept pretty private — but if he did, I bet bedtime stories with Grandpa Buck were a real treat.
