Good Feller

Aug 04 2005 01:34 AM

Why is bue the American League color but black the National League's? Why aren't baseball shoes as good as they were prior to World War II? What sporting goods manufacturer's name was literally the name of the man who manufactured the sporting goods?

The answers to these questions and so much more are in Frank Deford's fascinating piece on Bob Feller in the new Sports Illustrated (August 8, NFL Training Camp Kickoff on the cover). Rapid Robert, at 86, continues to lead a life worth living and Deford, as usual, makes us care.

Highly recommended.
