Former pitcher Rick Sutcliffe, KU Hospital executive honored with Buck O’Neil Legacy Awards

To receive the Buck O’Neil Legacy Award meant as much or more to Rick Sutcliffe than any of the awards he earned as a player. “I am a much better person because of getting to know Buck O’Neil,” Sutcliffe said. “Honestly, every time I hear his name, it changes you. It takes away, if there is any, anger or hate. You just want to go help somebody.”
