Bob Feller Major League Debut 83 Years Ago

The 17 year old Bob Feller’s first official major league appearance came on July 19th in the eighth inning of a game against the Washington Senators in Griffith Stadium that the Indians were losing 9-2. Feller plunked the first batter, Red Kress, in the ribs with a wild curveball. Then, throwing only fastballs, Feller retired the side around two walks on a strikeout and two popups to end his one inning of work.
