Olbermann will have a tribute, I'm sure.

This man should have been UNANIMOUS choice for HOF when they did the Negro League inductees. What better way than to have their top diplomat to be the headliner. Its a crying shame he died before he got the call.

Remember this from the man, himself:
"Shed no tears for Buck," he told the crowd. "I couldn't attend Sarasota High School. That hurt. I couldn't attend the University of Florida. That hurt.
"But not going into the Hall of Fame, that ain't going to hurt me that much, no. Before, I wouldn't even have a chance. But this time I had that chance. Just keep loving old Buck."
Class and grace personified. The world was a better place because he was here.

Very sad news...he was such a wonderful man. I hope this hits the maroons that failed to vote him into the HoF hard.
Rest in peace, Buck.
