One of the greatest of his time, if not all time. Also a proud American hero. Unfortunately, people hate him for being 'bitter' towards today's players, which I think wrongly colors his wonderful career. Hopefully, he'll be remembered alongside the likes of Seaver, Johnson, Ryan, Koufax, and others as among the most dominant pitchers in MLB history.

Got his autograph at a card show once. He did a ton of those, at least when I was actively collecting in the 80s, and he always seemed to be good to fans.

As you say, he was a real hero in the military as well as a sports hero. One of the greats.

I remember as a kid, seeing the USS Alabama which he serves on during the war, and they had his bunk marked and a little plaque dedicated to him. I had never heard of him really so I found a book in the library that told an abridged tale of his life. Seemed like a great man.

I really like Joe Posnanski's column about Bob Feller. Not much I can add to what he wrote.

Does anybody really care? I had a choice between this and Raw. Guess what was on? Hint: I have an XBox.
