Buck O'Neil never uttered a single word of bitterness or regret about not being elected to the baseball Hall of Fame. Till the end, he urged those who loved and rooted for him to do the same.

Now, long after a near miss that left many wondering if he'd ever make it, they can rejoice.

O'Neil, a champion of Black ballplayers during a monumental, eight-decade career on and off the field, joined Minnie Minoso, Gil Hodges and three others in getting chosen for the Hall of Fame on Sunday.
