    The KIng is Dead!

    http://www.winnipegsun.com/Sports/Ot...77744-sun.html


    IN my youth I saw Eddie pitch and it was something to behold. I walked away in awe at how this man could pitch from 2nd base and just blow hitters away. I am not usually a big softball fan but this man was truly special and had a ton of talent.
    2006 Redzone mock Draftee's- 1(st) Daniel Bard(redsox), 1(st sup)( Jordan Walden (Angels), 2(nd) rd.- Zach Britton(Orioles), 3(rd) Blair Erickson(Cardinals), 3(rd) Tim Norton( Yankees),(cuz its a Tim Hortons thing

    Pain heals. Chicks dig scars. Glory... lasts forever.

    I'm sorry to read of his death. I can remember reading an article on him in Sport magazine way back in 1967.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."

    So that's the "Famous Dead People Trifecta", Hank Bauer, Anna Nicole Smith, and King Eddie?

    I remember seeing him pitch back in the 80s. What amazed me was him pitching blindfolded from second base and striking the batter out.
    If you think small, you'll go nowhere in life.

    He was incredible.


    "Feigner’s fastpitch was once clocked at 104 mph ... In a two-inning exhibition in 1967, he fanned Willie Mays, Willie McCovey, Brooks Robinson, Maury Wills, Harmon Killebrew and Roberto Clemente. He's nearing 80, but ‘The King’ still tours with his “Court.” " The King and His “Court” touring team has played over 10,000 softball games in 100 countries since the late 1940’s and achieved widespread fame similar to that of the Harlem Globetrotters."
