    Re: Bob Feller being treated for leukemia

    My prayers are with Bob Feller. He was a hero of mine. He was striking out batters when strikeouts by batters were not cool. Look at his era compared to Nolan Ryan's. Batters just did not strikeout as often back when Rapid Robert was mowing them down.

    Like me, an Iowa guy. "The heater from Van Meter" was his local nickname. One of the great stories of very small town midwest guys making it big. An easy guy to cheer for.

    R.I.P.
    In his later years Feller sometimes came across as the ultimate "get off my lawn" cranky old man, but he was both a terrific pitcher and a fierce patriot.

    Well said, RB. RIP , Bob.

    My son and I got his autograph a couple times and he was kind and gracious to me and my son. Talked to my son for about 15 minutes about baseball. Zach had no idea who he was at the time and thought he was just some grandpa guy.

    One of the best. I always liked how he never blamed being in WWII for his career records being less than what they would have been if he had not gone to war. He was very proud of his military part of his life and felt it was his duty to go. But if not for WWII he would have won over 300 games and easily passed 3,000 strikeouts. R.I.P. Bob Feller

    Feller was the very first MLB player to volunteer for the military after Pearl Harbor was bombed.
