As Father’s Day rapidly approaches, so does the 3rd annual Hall of Fame Classic. It’s hard to believe that we are only two years removed from the Inaugural Classic which provided what was probably the last opportunity to see Rapid Robert Feller pitch. He started the game and did himself proud.

It is even more difficult to believe that we are only one year removed from the 2nd annual game where the honorary captains were Bob Feller and Harmon Killebrew. Both of whom we lost within the last year.
Baseball lost its greatest ambassador in Bob Feller and a class act in Harmon Killebrew. They don’t make them like that anymore. I’m excited about this year’s weekend events, however, it will be tempered by the reminder of the loss of these two immortals. They will be sorely missed and will never be replaced.
