Paper Reports Bob Feller Died, Except He Didn't


The Lorain Morning Journal posted an article on their site last night reporting that Bob Feller had died.

He had not. Feller is still with us, though the end is probably near; the 92-year-old is reportedly in hospice after a serious bout with pneumonia and his ongoing battle against leukemia.

The LMJ posted this correction to their story shortly after:

A report posted overnight that said Cleveland Indians great Bob Feller had died was posted prematurely. Bob Feller has not died.

Our thoughts and prayers are obviously with his family right now, both immediate and the larger Indians community. We're going to lose a great one.
