Buck O’Neil, champion of black athletes during an epic career spanning eight decades on and off the field, joined Gil Hodges, Minnie Minoso and three others elected to the University of baseball team’s Hall of Fame. Former Minnesota Twins teammates Tony Oliva and Jim Kaat were also picked along with Bud Fowler by a pair of veterans. Dick Allen, a longtime slugger who died last December, cast one vote out of fear of voting. The six newcomers will be interred in Cooperstown, New York, next July along with any new members elected by the Baseball Writers Association of America. David Ortiz, Barry Bonds and Alex Rodriguez were on that ballot.
