Rapid Robert Looks Back

Email Email Print

Bob Feller, 89, talks to America’s finest sports writer, Terry Pluto.

Feller estimated he averaged about “125 to 135 pitches” per game. He said he rarely felt tired.

To prove the point, in his final start of 1938, he set a major-league record with 18 strikeouts against Detroit.

“The last hitter was Chet Laabs, and I already struck him out four times,” Feller said. “He was called out again to end the game. He said to the umpire, ‘You missed that last one.’ And the umpire said, ‘Maybe, but you missed the first 14, so you’re out!’ “
