Feller Washed Out Again as Williams Declares Tribe Favorite

June 9, 1948 The Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox game scheduled for Wednesday afternoon was cancelled due to rain and cold weather. Mostly due to the cool weather, the game became the third time in a week that Bob Feller’s scheduled start was altered. “There is a mental condition involved,” Feller said. “Like in Philadelphia last Monday. I was going to pitch with two...

Tribe Washed Out in Philly, Sets Rotation for Boston

June 7, 1948 They’ll have to play them eventually, but for today, the Philadelphia Athletics were able to avoid the Cleveland Indians. The streaking Tribe was looking to issue a four-game sweep to the Athletics, but were rained out instead. About three hours before the scheduled game time, a heavy rain swept through Shibe Park for approximately 30 minutes. It was enough for the...

Bob Feller’s Little Black Book of Baseball Wisdom – Bob Feller & Burton Rocks

Bob Feller is largely considered the Indians greatest player and with great reason.

His number 19 is retired by the club and he has been honored with the creation of the Bob Feller award, given to a Major Leaguer and a Navy serviceman at the end...

Bob Feller museum to close in Van Meter Iowa

I never knew there was a Bob Feller museum in his hometown of Van Meter Iowa, but today I found out it was closing. I also didn’t know where Van Meter Iowa was, but it’s just over 680 miles away from the Bob Feller statue outside of Progressive Field. It’s about a 10 hour drive due West. It’s an interesting read about how the museum stayed open each year. “We would have...

Feller baseball museum struggles when namesake dies

VAN METER, Iowa (AP) -- Nothing brings former Cleveland Indians star Bob Feller's hometown of Van Meter, Iowa, together quite like Randi Van Rees and her succulent pork tenderloin sandwiches.
