Feller

By Greg Brinda

He was around so long we took him for granted

He was one of the greatest baseball players ever and he made himself available to all of us literally every day of his life.

How many of us have ever even been around greatness let alone for as long as 92 years.

I’m just happy, forunate and honored that I got a chance to spend as much time with him as I did.

We had great conversations about baseball and life. Feller was as fascinating a man as there was.

He was a war hero and a hall of famer. He was an icon. Yet he knew his place and he knew where he stood every day of his life.

I just can’t believe we won’t be seeing him at any Indians games any more. But his spirit will be there forever and that’s why I think we’ll all be at peace.

May you rest in peace Bob
