Legendary Major League Baseball right hander Bob Feller, who at 91 years old qualifies as the third-oldest living member of the Hall of Fame, is undergoing treatment for leukemia.

Feller is undergoing outpatient treatment at the Cleveland Clinic, not far from where he spent 18 seasons pitching for the Cleveland Indians, tossing three no-hitters in that time--including the only complete game no-hitter thrown on Opening Day (April 16, 1940).

The eight-time All-Star was receiving three chemotherapy injections daily for a week, and he told the Associated Press that he's "feeling better" than he has in weeks.
