Colbert Honors Buck O'Neil

Stephen Colbert just put a picture of local favorite Negro-leaguer Buck O'Neil on his mantel, proclaiming it a bigger honor than the Hall of Fame.

I'm not sure I entirely agree, but I will agree that Stephen Colbert is more honorable than the boneheads who failed to elect O'Neil to the Hall of Fame.

That they choose to ignore John Donaldson too is just as neglectful as passing over Buck. Donaldson may agruably be the best pitcher ever in the history of baseball. Pete Gorton and a team of researchers are working on a book to prove the point.

M&S, Yes we are working on the career of John Donaldson, and we are looking for help. Donaldson's career spans the United States and we need to find instances when he played. If you are interested to find out more about how you can help go to: http://johndonaldson.bravehost.com/
The effort needs assistance from dedicated people everywhere.
Plus Donaldson's story is amazing.
Thanks for the mention.
Sincerely,
Pete Gorton
