    The Life of Bob Feller 

    Baseball legend.

    War hero.

    The hardest-throwing pitcher of all time.

    Each of these terms has been used to describe Bob Feller.

    Feller's emergence as a baseball icon while still a teenager fascinated baseball fans young and old, and his accomplishments, both on and off the diamond, have withstood the test of time.

    His service to his country in World War II, putting his career on hold in his prime while being the envy of baseball fans everywhere at the time, still astounds people today.

    Bob Feller is a true legend.

    And it all started right here in Van Meter.
