Default Buck O'Neil passes away

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2615960

He might have been the finest individual ever associated with the game of baseball. He's one of the few prominent people that passed on that I regret never meeting in person. We will miss the stories and your enthusaism for life, Buck.

It's very sad. They were even planning a big party for his 95th birthday next month. RIP Buck...
