4th O’Neil Award For Character

Rachel Robinson

COOPERSTOWN – The Baseball Hall of Fame board of directors today announced it has selected Rachel Robinson, Jackie Robinson’s widow, as the 2017 recipient of the John Jordan “Buck” O’Neil Lifetime Achievement Award.

She becomes the fourth winner of the Buck O’Neil Award, established in 2007 to honor an individual whose efforts broadened the game’s appeal and whose character, integrity and dignity is comparable to the late O’Neil, who passed away in 2006 after eight decades of contributions to the game.
