True. The funny thing is that Feller has also advocated that Shoeless Joe Jackson be inducted into the Hall of Fame. Maybe it is just me, but that has always struck me as being just a tad inconsistent to be so vocal in opposition to Rose being reinstated to baseball while being a supporter of Jackson.
Feller was a great pitcher, and I respect his volunteering for military service in WWII, but "cranky old nut job" is right.
