Bob Feller Still Pitching at Age 90 - and will be pitching Father's Day!

This is a must see, if I can talk spouse into spending the weekend in Cooperstown.

Since I won't be spending June 21 in Fairbanks watching midnight baseball, this is the next best thing: The All Star game in Cooperstown, NY.

Bob Feller, among others, will be pitching.

What a treat for a history buff and someone who used to enjoy baseball - and was too young to see the real "good old days".

The closest I ever got to a baseball all-star was getting to meet Mudcat Grant several years ago. He is quite the southern gentleman, very soft spoken - and was walking with the help of a cane. We all have to grow old, and sometimes it seems like the most unfair thing in the world.

I hope I am lucky enough to get to see this Father's Day game. And I hope Bob Feller is able to pitch.
