I worked for The Star's online edition from 1998-'99 as its online sports editor and went with the sports staff to Kauffman Stadium for the news release of George Brett's induction into the Hall of Fame. Buck O'Neil was there and graciously took time for a quick grip-and-grin photo that I still have albeit in non-digital form. I was and still am impressed with his gentlemanly manner and willingness to take that time for fans of the game that he truly loved and fans of his legacy in baseball.
