Sad news today out of the world of baseball.  Hall of Famer Harmon Killebrew has died.  Harmon Killebrew was one of the greatest right handers to ever play the game of baseball (hitting 573 home runs in his career).  I’d met him many times and he was always extremely nice.  I am very sad over this news.  RIP, Harmon.  Thanks for being such an inspiration!

Happy Birthday, Eddie Murray

Baseball Hall of Famer Eddie Murray celebrates his day of birth today, February 24.  He’s regarded as one of the best switch hitters of all time.  I’ve met Eddie Murray many times and considering how impressive his lifetime career statistics are, I cannot recall a time where he didn’t stop and sign autographs for fans.  The world needs more people like that!  Happy birthday Eddie!

RIP Bob Feller

Sad news from the world of baseball.  Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller has died at the age of 92.  Feller had a lifetime ERA of 3.25, 44 shutouts and three no-hitters, including the only opening-day no-hitter in Major League Baseball history, in April 1940.  I met Bob Feller on many occasions and he was always nice.  The world will never see someone as special as Bob Feller again.  Rest in peace Bob.
