    Is the player in his last season, Ron Reed. The hall of famer was Dave Bing. The guy who owned the plane I don't know.

      Owner = Bob Short
      HOF = Elgin Baylor
      Future MLB = Steve Hamilton

      On January 18, 1960 the Minneapolis Lakers plane had to make an emergency landing in an Iowa cornfield during an ice storm.

                That one I don't know. If I had to throw out a guess I'll go with Bill Hallahan.

                I found the answer to the airplane question by doing a google search. The article I found didn't include Steve Hamilton so I looked up the Lakers roster from 1960 and recognized his name as a baseball player.

                  I remember Hamilton. I know he was a tall lanky guy. But I had forgotten that he had played basketball. I know I had heard it somewhere though.

                      Marty Marion...He and his partner actually had their offer accepted by the Lakers, contingent on no one locally stepping forward to buy them. That's when George Mikan opened up his wallet. That X amount of thousands of dollars would have turned into over 5 million when the Lakers were sold again a few years later.

                        I am not sure what you mean. There was only one Steve Hamilton that played MLB according to Baseball Almanac. He is the one I remember. What Yankee fan can forget the Folly Floater.

                        Now if you are referring to the question at hand, I guess I can say, sorry, but I was speaking to a post in this thread. I did not know the answer to the question until someone mentioned Marion.
