bob fellerOn July 19, 1936,  17-  year-old Iowa farm boy Bob Feller makes his major league debut, pitching one inning of relief for the Cleveland Indians against the Washington Senators in Washington, D.C. The hard-throwing ‘kid’ allows no hits and no runs, striking out none and walking two batters. (Feller claims the box score is wrong – he claims to have struck out Buddy Lewis in his autobiography.)

Feller will become one the baseball greatest pitchers and be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
