1950 Bowman
Chief Petty Officer Bob Feller

So it's Memorial Day and what better card to post than that of a real hero: Bob Feller.

Feller enlisted in the Navy the day after the attack on Pear Harbor and served aboard the USS Alabama as a gunner. He served from 1941 -1945, missing four prime years of a terrific baseball career.

Feller is not the only player to serve. A special thanks to all who served this country, ballplayer or not.

Saw the "Boys in the Hall" special on him the other day and boy was I impressed. Actually picked up a 53 Feller at a show this weekend
