Investor’s Business Daily has released a lengthy, informative profile on Cleveland Indians legend Bob Feller, which you can read by clicking here! A snippet:

Playing from 1936 to 1956 with the Indians, Feller compiled a 266-162 won-loss record, a 3.25 earned run average, 2,581 strikeouts and three no-hitters.

He also helped Cleveland win the 1948 World Series title, the Indians’ last.

Feller accomplished all that despite losing more than three prime years to Navy combat in WW II.

Detroit slugger Hank Greenberg said that facing Feller meant dealing with blinding speed and “a very deceptive motion. You never knew where the ball was coming from.”

Hal Naragon, who caught Feller for the Indians, told IBD: “Bob had a great desire to be successful, and he worked awful hard at it. He had a lot of determination, a lot of confidence. He kept himself in wonderful physical condition.”
