    Re: Bob Feller Passes Away

    "Rapid Robert" ...the 1st MLB pitcher clocked over 100 mph. And certainly a true veteran to his country. I remember my grandfather telling me about the times he'd stop at Bob Fellers house in Vanmeter, and delivered their bread. This was before he got into baseball. R.I.P.

    "Heater from Van Meter" passes away.

    What a great career Bob Feller had in the golden era of baseball.

    Home grown in the state of Iowa. RIP

    Re: Bob Feller Passes Away

    This does suck. I had the pleasure of being able to get to know Mr. Feller back when I was in little league. He was friends with my coach at time. He, on more than one occasion, taught me a lot about pitching and how to throw a curve ball properly. He was one of the nicest persons I have ever met. This is a sad day but he lived a wonderful, long life. I will cherish my memories and the few photos I have of him and I.

    R.I.P. Bob Feller!

    When I go to sign into the funeral book I'm going to charge the family $25.

    Re: Bob Feller Passes Away

    My grandpa tells me stories of playing against Bob when he was at Van Meter.
    Says he threw 95-100 in high school there.
    My grandpa is proud to tell the story of his 3 hits off of Bob in the
    district finals.
    RIP Mr. Felller.......you were a great man!

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    I was really sad to hear about his death. My wife took the news harder than I did since she is related to him. Rest in peace Bob!
