Happy Mother's Day to all the Moms out there! I have a wonderful mother and my wife is an AMAZING mother to our three boys! Happy Mother's Day!
When it comes to Mother's Day and baseball I always think of Bob Feller. On Mother's Day of 1939, Bob Feller's mother was in the stands to see her son pitch against the Chicago White Sox. Sitting near the visiting teams dougout, along the first base line, she was struck in the head by a foul line drive. Her son, Bob, had thrown the pitch that resulted in her glasses getting broken and seven stitches.
