Hal Manders, 92; Pitched for Detroit Tigers/Chicago Cubs - alt.obituaries | Google Groups
I got to drive for Hal Manders in a parade a few years back. For those who don't know him he was from Waukee, a pro baseball player and Bob Fellers Cousin. Bob Feller, Nile Kinnick and Hal Manders all played on the same Junior Legion Baseball Team. Imagine playing with those guys, having a great pro career and still be considered the third most legendary person on the team. He had great stories about their high school days and his times in the pros. They have dedictaed a room to him at the Waukee Library which displays a bunch of his memorabilia. Pretty amazing that these three guys from Dallas County Iowa would come out of the same era.
