A word about Bob Feller, 1918-2010



We learned a few Decembers ago that Bob Feller passed away after at age 92.

I did not see Feller pitch but every baseball fan knows about Bob Feller. 

This is an account of his baseball career:

"Before his career ended on Sept. 30, 1956, months before the inaugural Cy Young Award was presented, he had won 266 games, struck out 2,581 batters, won 62 percent of his decisions, pitched three no-hitters, 12 one-hitters and 44 shutouts and won a pitchers' Triple Crown.

He led the league in victories six times and strikeouts seven times."

But there is more!

He enlisted after Pearl Harbor and served in World War II for almost 4 years!

What a remarkable life! 

RIP Bob Feller!
