Feller allowed a leadoff triple to Bobby Young to start the game and he scored in the next at bat on an error by the third baseman. Feller retired 17 straight batters after...

Feller Gets Back on Track Behind Two Homers; Indians 6, Tigers 2

June 29, 1948 In no way was it pretty, or dominating or brilliant, but it was a win.

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.
