Goodbye, Bob Feller

Ron Santo a couple weeks ago. … And now Bob Feller.

I consider myself incredibly lucky to have met and shaken hands with a half-dozen hall of famers during the last few years. And now within a couple weeks of each other, two of them are gone.

The news of Feller’s death immediately took me back to the day I met him at a signing session in 2006. Feller graciously engaged me in conversation while signing a baseball and inscribing a photo for me. He posed with me for a picture, too.

Good reads …
