    Default RIP Bill Buckner

    For those of us old enough to remember the 1986 World Series.

    Buckner got a bad rap for the 1986 World Series. Yes, it was a moment people won't forget. He made an error like thousands of players before and after him. However, it's wrong that it epitomized his career and destroyed his reputation for many years. Only after the Red Sox won the World Series was he truly welcomed back. Time heals wounds but that was a gaping one for far too long.
