Edit/Update: Bob Feller has passed away at 8:15 pm CST on December 15, 2010.
Lying on his deathbed, dying of cancer, Bob Feller is a baseball legend. He began playing at the age of seventeen with the Cleveland Indians. He returned to Van Meter, Iowa, for his senior year of high school. He is a hall-of-fame pitcher, had a candy bar named after him, and will be greatly missed.
I visited the Bob Feller Museum with my son and nephews when they were in 5th grade, and my son had been assigned a project on Bob Feller. It is a great museum.
If you have written a 55, a story in exactly 55 words, be sure to tell G-Man. He will come and visit and leave his comment.
