Not positive Minnie deserved it, but Buck O’Neil, goodness yes, what took them so long?
When Buck failed to get in last time, the argument was that his numbers as a player weren’t up to the level of other contemporary Negro League greats. But he should’ve at least gone in as a “contributor” to the game. A 100% Goodwill Ambassador for baseball. Even today it’s hard to hear his name without smiling.
