Recent Inductee to MLB Hall of Fame and also namesake to the Buck O'Neil Lifetime Achievement Award given no more than every 3 years to an MLB executive based on meritorious contributions to the game.
Born "John W. Jackson" Bud Fowler was a heralded player, manager and club organizer. In addition to his talents on the field playing for such teams in the region such as The Peublo Pastimes and teams in Topeka and the Nebraska League he also was a Vaudeville Actor/Showman right here in Denver during numerous off seasons.
