Fun Cards: 2019 TWJ Bob Feller
“The Heater from Van Meter” missed three full seasons in his prime to serve this country militarily. In the four seasons before leaving for World War II, Bob Feller won 93 games with a 3.15 ERA and struck out 1007 batters. After coming back, he had three more 20-win seasons (including 26 in 1946) and struck out 348 batters in ’46. A no-brainer for the Hall of Fame, Rapid Robert cruised into Cooperstown with 93.8% of the vote in 1962.
