https://www.yahoo.com/sports/dick-allen-one-of-the-best-baseball-players-not-in-the-hall-of-fame-dead-at-78-202953921.html

i loved this guy back in my youth. he fought all of the racist shit that he was dealt. yet, virtually said nothing. a great player. too bad he passed before getting elected to the HOF.

other great fighters i liked (and not just against racism): 1) alex johnson, 2) johnny sample, 3) jimmy piersall, and 4) reggie smith (saw a spring training game in cocoa beach where a bunch of pigs threw racial epithets at him. he jumped into the stands and got off a few of good shots at them. the rest ran away).

RIGHT ON,FRANK,especially about Allen's refusing to knuckle under to baseball's racist establishment . (He and my cousin,Ferguson Jenkins,who'll be 78 Sunday,had the thankless task of integrating the  AAA Phillies farm team the Arkansas Travellers in '63-Dick and Fergie were roommates-and they suffered racism from HOME and visiting fans and teaamates,cops and of course,were forced to patronize blacks-only restaurants,hotels and restrooms).
Allen,kept from Cooperstown by the racist like of sabermetrics godfather Bill JAMES (his is one of the worst HOF snubs) ,led MLB in OPS from 1964-1974,topping Hall Of Famers Mickey Mantle,Henry Aron,Willie Mays,Ernie Banks,Willie McCovey,etc.,plus he was an adequate third baseman .Also,contrary to James' lies about Allen as a clubhouse cancer,his teammates and managers LOVED the guy .RIP,Dick ,you and your 41-ounce bat are heading home,with Cooperstown calling in '22.

Like Fr. Ciszek, I understood that I was dealing with highly skilled sociopaths, men unencumbered by consciences.

Great hitter and his stats over the era that he played in are HOF worthy. Many believe he saved the ChiSox from being relocated out of Chicago. He had to wear a helmet while playing first base in Philadelphia because of racist Philly fan chucking batteries at his dome...home games!  RIP Dick Allen.

On this we agree.  :koolaid

Both of these racist cities have been forever ruled by the Democrat party, I may add.
