I once got a hit off Bob Feller. Of course, he was probably in his 60s at the time. And there were no infielders or outfielders on the field that I can recall. I remembered this moment in time recently when I heard that Feller passed away at 92. He was one of those pitching phenoms who made it to the majors at 17 years old and eventually was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame after a long career with the Cleveland Indians. He struck out 17 batters in a game his rookie season, much like what the Washington Nationals’ Stephen Strasburg did in his debut last season.

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Surprise is what makes "24" tick, and there should be plenty of it as Jack Bauer embarks on a fourth season of saving the world from terrorists. Or maybe this time he won't. With Agent Bauer, played by Kiefer Sutherland, you can never be sure. "There's a sort of roiling internal conflict put into the body of a hero," says executive producer Evan Katz, describing Bauer's "dark corners" as being more traditional for a villain. "You're not sure what he will do, not sure how far he will go. " Last season, Bauer shot up heroin, cut off the arm of his Counter Terrorist Unit partner, shot a man in custody to get him to hand over information more quickly and threatened to expose a terrorist's daughter to a deadly virus, just to name a few. But he also saved the world from that killer virus.
