The Big Baseball Diamond in the Sky....


Famous Negro-Leaguer Buck O'Neill has died at the age of 94. Instinct always tell me to be sad or think..."awww" when a person dies but this man lived a long, seemingly fulfilling life. To live 94 years is nothing short of blessing. In case for some reason you don't know of this man, he was a pioneer former Negro-Leaguer. Even at 94 he seemed to get around well, and have sharp mind. You can only imagine how hard it was to break sports barriers back in his day. However, he emerged as a popular figure in Negro League baseball. He leaves behind no children. (Story)

94 years is a long life. You never wanna see anyone go, but you can't ask for much more then that.
