One of my favorite baseball players has died after a battle with dementia.
I remember him fondly when he played with the cubs.
"After battling the disease of Lewy Body Dementia, Bill Buckner passed away early the morning of May 27th surrounded by his family,"
Buckner is remembered for one play in his career which is completely unfair.
22 seasons and you are reduced to one play.
He let a slow grounder go between his legs allowing the Mets to win in the 10th inning.
Now let's not forget boston had a 5-3 lead heading into the bottom of the 10th.
Let's not forget the game was tied up by the Mets already when he made his error.
Let's not forget that even if he made the play, the game was tied so they had to play another inning which didnt guarentee a boston win.
And lastly, let's not forget that this error didn't lose the world series. They had to play game 7 yet and lost that one.
Get over it already....
Give this man the credit he deserves for the career he had.
Rest in peace Mr buckner.....
