He was my idol as a kid.

I held my bat like him.

RIP big Dick.

Career OPS of 912. Should have been in HOF years ago. RIP.

That's a legit good stat right there.

Jim Rice gets in, but Allen doesn't?

Allen was considered a militant black player and that's why he's not in the HOF.

I predict current BLM wokeness will now propel him into the HOF.

He should be in there.
