Phil,

I think there is a decent argument to be made for all of them. But you absolutely forgot John Beckwith, who I personally think is really high among those who should be inducted.

That's a good one, Kenny. Beckwith is on my short list but just below the players that I listed.

My vote goes to Francisco Coimbre. Satchel Paige said he was the toughest hitter he ever faced, above Ted Williams and Josh Gibson. Clemente said he was a better ball player than even himself.

Although Buck was undoubtedly a huge figure in terms of Negro League history, I don't know if he was a better "player" than many of the individuals listed above.
