Bob Feller, of course, was anything but the norm.
In a word, cool. In two words, very cool. Feller's iconic high leg kick just lends itself to being transformed into a silhouette that will immediately make us think about his legendary career. The patch will look great on Cleveland's new road unis (although it would work a lot better if the distracting Chief Wahoo patch weren't occupying the other sleeve).
As I lamented in Goodyear a few days back, the Indians are going to have big shoes to fill now that their franchise icon is gone. But this patch is a good reminder he'll never be that far away in the memories of baseball fans.
