When Bob Feller was 9 years old, his teacher asked him to write an essay about an oak tree. Here are the ideas that he put in his theme:

An oak tree can be cut down and sawed into boards. You can make baseball bats out of them. You can also make home plates out of the boards. You can make bleachers out of the boards so people can watch baseball games.

At the age of nine years, he was saying - For me to live is baseball.

The good confession is in essence: “For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”
