It's Not Fair

Former major leaguer Bill Buckner died the other day.  69.

He had a solid career-- 22 years, .289 average, more than 2,700 hits.

Unfortunately, Buckner will always be remembered for one horrible moment--  an error that helped give the New York Mets the 1986 World Series.

Buckner confronted the issues.  He didn't hide.  Bill Buckner threw out the first pitch at a Red Sox game in 2008.  He was cheered and forgiven, as he should be.
