Bob Feller

My cousin posted this on a social networking site. Being that it is my family, I'll take his word.

Bob Feller pitched 18 years for the Cleveland Indians. He won 266 career games, was an eight time All-Star and is a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame. He won 20 or more games in six seasons, pitched more than 300 innings in three seasons and finished with an ERA below 3.00 in five seasons.

But during a documentary that my cousin was watching, when asked what was his most memorable win (or something to that effect), his answer was World War II.


Bob Feller missed three full season in the prime of his career to fight for our country in World War II. He enlisted in the Navy at the age of 23 after the Japanese attach on Pearl Harbor. When he came home in 1945, he pitched for the Indians two days later and won.

Thousands of heroic men and women serve our county each day. Each day, the freedom is protected by brave soldiers and sailors. 

Let's quit taking it for granted.
