I could bet you right now, even money, that you can’t pick one out of any three pitchers that will win twenty games next year.
We'll get our story from about the greatest pitcher of our time. You see him behind me, he's retired Speedball King, Bob Feller.
WALLACE: Bob, I still can't understand why baseball players now playing, or even old ballplayers who no longer have any connection with baseball, don't come to your aid and who are they? We, for instance, were talking to Jackie Robinson this week. He said, I think the reserve clause is all right." Can you tell me one Major League ballplayer of real note who'll stick with you, who will testify against the reserve clause with you and if not, Bob, why not?
FELLER: I'm not going to mention any names.
The tobacco ad Wallace pimps at the beginning of the interview is hilarious. Seems so out of place when viewed through a 2012 lens, where the idea of advertising cigarettes on tv or radio is considered heresy.
I liked where Mike pre-emptively distanced himself, CBS and this wholesome tobacco company from any unpleasant opinion that Bob Feller might express.
