Visitor Tips and News About Bob Feller Museum
Collection of signed baseballs, uniforms, and an insight to baseball back in the day. Small museum, but interesting.[Deb Taylor, 06/05/2011]
This is a cool little museum that honors hometown hero Bob Feller. Feller had a Hall of Fame baseball career. He also served the nation in the Navy in World War II, missing four baseball seasons in the process. The museum covers both aspects of his career.
Also, look for the bat used by Babe Ruth in that famous photo from his final trip to Yankee Stadium, the bat Ruth essentially used as a cane. That bat was Feller's and it's there at the museum.[Steve, 10/25/2010]
