The great Buck O’Neil — player, manager, coach, scout and, perhaps most important, the man who brought the Negro Leagues to life for generations with his rich storytelling — has been elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame.
Incredibly long overdue. He was the best of us.
The Bears and Cardinals are 2 of the oldest teams in the NFL - and the nice man that directs people in front of the elevator gave me a butterscotch because I was worried about traffic going home - even the candy is old school!
On the other hand, we were on the field around 4 hours prior to kickoff.. did not see DeAndre Hopkins test out his hamstring on the field during that period, as he indicated this week he would do. I don't blame him, it's nasty outside but may affect usage today.
Tonight the HOF Golden Days committee considers White Sox legend Minnie Minoso - the first Black Latino player in MLB, he pioneered the way for generations of future stars who looked up to the Cuban Comet. More from @bbdoolittle
TOMORROW: the Golden Days and Early Baseball Era Committees will meet to consider this year’s ballots for election to the Hall of Fame.
The results will be revealed Sunday night at 6 p.m. ET on @MLBNetwork.
OH in Chicago about this weather: the WORST! Miserable! Nasty!
Well, if they can get through this, the Cardinals have sunny skies the rest of the way - either in domes or at home for the remainder of the regular season.
