I'll put this article here because Dick Allen keeps falling just short of making the Hall.  "Richie" was my favorite player as a kid and couldn't understand why some fans didn't like him.  Of course I was just a kid and my parents were not racists unlike most of the other in my neighborhood and much of the city.  That said it's hard to forgive him for walking out on the club in 1976.
