Eddie Feigner was a master at the windmill windup.He threw 4 pitches: fastball, rise ball, drop ball andchange up. He would confuse the batter with hisdifferent release points. He was a great athletewho wanted to strike out everyone he faced.

A great softball pitcher is damn near impossible to hit from their mound. One of my finest moments in my brief softball career was playing vs. the Sully Lions. They had an ( old) lefty pitcher who was past his prime but in his prime one of the best softball throwers in the world....maybe his name was Hendricks? Somehow I fouled a couple off him and then scratched a single thru the infield for one of 2-3 hits we got off him. After the game, walking to the car we spoke and he told me...”I was really trying to get you out on that hit...but my whole life I struggle against lefties...good hit!” I was maybe 20 but I thought that was a nice thing to say. The guy could move the ball up, down, inside, outside and at high velocity. There was a couple of year where the Sully Lions reaches the finals of the State Fast Pitch championship and the forfeited because the championship games were played on Sunday.....Sully wouldn’t play on Sunday. Period. He was one of the pitchers on that Sully team...and I think the better of their pitchers.

From softball pitching distance Eddie was unhittable. It was nearly impossible when he pitched from 2nd base. Got to see him a couple of time when I was younger. He put on a great show.
