Remembering Bob Feller’s Opening Day No-Hitter

April 16, 2019 |

Many accomplishments in Major League Baseball history have come and gone, to be expected on some level with the 162-game schedule and 30 teams competing on a nightly basis for six months of the year.

Countdown to Opening Day – 19 days

If you ask Clevelanders which player was the best to wear the number 19 while representing the city in a sporting event, chances are you will get a lot of answers naming former Cleveland Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar as their pick.

No knock on Bernie, but he doesn’t hold a candle in comparison to one of the best 19s ever to play the game of baseball, Bob Feller. Read More
