VIDEO: MLB Father’s Day Tribute to Jack Buck

Sunday marks 15 years since the death of legendary Cardinals announcer Jack Buck.

This Father’s Day weekend, Major League Baseball will explore the relationship between Jack Buck and St. Louisan and motivational speaker John O’Leary.

The short documentary, narrated by Joe Buck, tells the story that so many St. Louisans already know about O’Leary. John was severely burned as a child – over 100% of his body – and had a .5% chance of surviving the first night. Jack Buck would visit him in the hospital. Buck not only motivated John to get rehabilitate from him burns, but made good on a promise to hold a John O’Leary Day at the Ballpark if John got better. The two remained friends for the rest of Jack Buck’s life. John details their relationship in his book “On Fire“, and discusses Jack Buck in his motivational talks.
