    Pretty good article ( at bottom ) on a damn nice guy who was misunderstood by the masses in an era that was less than ideal for black players ..

    My Take from personal experiences

    A large part of why Richie " Dick " Allen was misunderstood lies deeper than anyone cares to investigate .

  • Greetings all! This here is a test article placeholder to serve until we have a few articles posted on the site. Soon you'll be able to begin checking here for articles and original content.
