Thoughts on Jonathan Lucroy, Bob Feller, and the Labeling of Military Personnel as “Heroes”

Last week, Jonathan Lucroy was honored with the 2015 Bob Feller Act of Valor of Award in recognition of his support of military servicepersons. Lucroy was one of six winners, a group that also included Hall of Famer George Brett, Chief Petty Officer Genell Cody of the U.S. Navy, and Staff Sergeant Rene Segura of the U.S. Marines. Lucroy’s comments indicate he was humbled by the...

Today in Tribe History: August 24, 1945

1945 – Bob Feller makes his first Major League appearance since 1941 and, by the results, it looked as though he never left as the 26-year-old allows just two runs on four hits with 12 strikeouts in a complete game victory over the Detroit Tigers. “Rapid Robert” had not pitched in a Major League game since winning his 25th game of the 1941 season on September 26th. He missed...

Bob Feller’s Career Reduced to a Trophy Case

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...
