Pitcher Robert Bob Feller (1918-2010) played Major League Baseball for the Cleveland Indians from 1936-1941 and from 1945-1956, with the time in-between spent in military service. Compiling a lifetime record of 266-162 with an E.R.A. of 3.25, Feller led the American League in wins six times.

Following his playing days, Feller was named the first President of the Major League Baseball’s Players Association (1958.) He was elected into Baseball’s Hall of Fame in 1962.
