    RIP- Bill Buckner

    Roundly jeered for his fielding error in the 1986 World Series, Bill is held in the highest esteem by true Red Sox fans for the many seasons of Hall of Fame-worthy contributions to The Nation.

    His career should not be judged and I doubt will by one play, the Red Sox would never have even been in the World Series without the great play all year of Bill Buckner.

    I followed him for many years while he was a Chicago Cub.

    When Leonidas was preparing to make his stand, a Persian envoy arrived. The envoy explained to Leonidas the futility of trying to resist the advance of the huge Persian army and demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms. Leonidas told Xerxes "MOLON LABE", or "Come And Get Them."

    For many years he unfortunately shared the same middle name as Bucky Dent and Aaron Boone in the RED SOX nation. More recently he has been recognized as the outstanding player and person that he was by the Sox establishment.

    He was with the Dodgers when I was a teenager in So Cal. Though he was a pretty decent player and got a raw deal in Boston. But I guess the Sox fans finally embraced him. RIP

    Pains me to realize and think he was only 4 years older than me. Billy Buck I enjoyed watching you play and hit!
