Bob Feller's Father's Glove

This glove was used by pitching great Bob Feller's father when they played catch when Feller was a child. Feller, one of the fastest pitchers in the history of baseball, was a phenom by the time he was 11. One day, he threw a pitch so hard that it broke three of his father’s ribs! Time Magazine wrote about the incident after Feller began his stellar major league career, in 1937, at the age of 17.
