  Buck O'Neill snubbed by Baseball Hall of Fame  
Last week the Hall of Fame inducted 17 players from the Negro leagues and pre-Negro leagues era yet this list DID NOT include O’Neill—who hit .288 lifetime and was the first black coach in the major leagues. Nobody has done more to promote, celebrate, and keep alive the oral history of the Negro Leagues than Buck O’Neill.

This story brings up two interesting questions. Should the identity and voting records of secret ballots for things like the hall of fame be revealed to the public? And should the baseball hall of fame take into account more than just statistics—but also factor in one’s overall contribution to a sport?
