Buck O’Neil’s Hall of Fame Induction Speech

Most of you know how we are huge fans of Buck O’Neil.  We have profiled him in the past and reviewed his spectacular book (written by Joe Posnanski) The Soul of Baseball.

At the end of the review I posted a link to a speech by Buck at an induction ceremony at the National Baseball Hall of Fame.  This was after intense and fruitless searching for video footage of the same ceremony.  Finally, over a year later, I have found it.  I now present to you the video footage of that same speech.

Can you white folks sing?

    Nice clip. I got a little misty during that — and learned a thing or two about Madam CJ Walker.
