BOB FELLER RUMORS & GOSSIP

Today in Tribe History: April 30, 1946

1946 – Bob Feller adds a second no-hitter to his long list of accomplishments already in his career as he blanks the Yankees in New York, 1-0. The Yankees seemed to have runners on base throughout the game, but Feller kept them from scoring. Solo walks in each of the first four innings and again in the sixth created opportunities that the Bronx Bombers were unable to cash in on...

Bob Feller museum to close in Van Meter Iowa

I never knew there was a Bob Feller museum in his hometown of Van Meter Iowa, but today I found out it was closing. I also didn’t know where Van Meter Iowa was, but it’s just over 680 miles away from the Bob Feller statue outside of Progressive Field. It’s about a 10 hour drive due West. It’s an interesting read about how the museum stayed open each year. “We would have...

Feller baseball museum struggles when namesake dies

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. As the owner of "Fat Randi's" Bar and Grill -- the "Fat" being her ex-husband, she jokes -- the infectiously convivial Van Rees turned a dive bar into a destination spot for a town just south...

Reliving Yesteryear: April 16, 1940 — Bob Feller’s Opening Day No-Hitter

“Hey hon, I need an opening line for an article.” My wife’s eyes rose to mine, her posture at the kitchen table held in a subtle, Sunday crossword lean. With a mischievous smile: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light...

Bob Feller's Three No-Hitters

If Zeus were a pitcher, he’d be jealous of Bob Feller.

Beginning his career as a teenager in 1936, Feller earned the nickname “The Heater from Van Meter” because of his blazing fastball. The nickname is a result...
