July 18, 2005 - Canadian American League (Can-Am) - North Shore Spirit
Lynn, MA.-The King lives! Eddie Feigner, the world\'s greatest softball pitcher, will appear August 15 at the New Fraser Field to give North Shore Spirit fans as well as area softball fans a royal treat that they will never forget.
The King and His Court is a world famous four-person softball team that is making Fraser Field one of its stops on its historic USA farewell tour. They have won 9,000 games in more than 100 countries and the King has fired 930 no-hitters. A movie is being made of his life story this summer.
In previous games here, "King" Feigner struck out batters pitching from second base ... between his legs ... and blindfolded.
On August 15, the Court will duel the North Shore All-Stars, who will feature some heat of their own: pitchers Jackie Collier of Swampscott and Bishop Fenwick and Ashley Mullin of Peabody, both of whom played in the North Shore Spirit Agganis All-Star Classic!
The July 11 issue of Sports Illustrated tabs Feigner as the world's greatest softball pitcher, and calls his family show a must-see this summer.
Also playing for the North Shore nine will be former professional baseball players from the North Shore Baseball League, several Lady Spirit all-stars as well as other area dignitaries.
Johnny Pesky of the Boston Red Sox will be on hand to help the locals and greet fans. Fans will want to be there when "Mr. Red Sox," a .307 lifetime hitter, meets The King, who now narrates, coaches, and demonstrates his pitching art during the show. The show is both serious and filled with comedy at the same time. Spectators will also have an opportunity to have their picture taken with Feigner.
