Bob Feller: The Best Indian by Far

Zach MartinCorrespondent IMay 16, 2008

What can you say about Bob Feller? One of the greatest Indians? One of the greatest pitchers of all-time? Al legend of baseball? How about all three.


Bob Feller was a man who could dominate any batter, and do it with style. With his crazy leg kick or his smile and determination on every pitch. Bob Feller was a man not to be reckoned with.


For 20 years Bob Feller had made batters angry and has the stats to show it:

Wins-266, Losses-162, ERA-3.25, Games-570, Games Started-484, Innings Pitched-3827, Hits-3271, Walks-1764, Strikeouts-2581 and Saves 21.

He had so much strength, he could pitch over 100 miles an hour. He had a blazing fastball and a bafflin curve ball to go along with his fast ball. He holds the record for the only oping day no hitter since 1940. He would have more stats but he was in World War II for four years. He has only played from the Indians from 1936-1941 and 1945-1956.

He was also elected into the hall-of-fame in 1962.

To me, he the best Indian of all-time.
