7/26/11 As a young boy about 10 Yrs old I use to hang around the East Side Improvement center.I used to watch Queen and her Maidens,California Cuties, But to see the Master of Fast Pitch softball was the greatest.I was so interested in fast pitch due to the King and his Court.I grew up always wanting to play,and at a young age I wanted to pitch.I found a marble ball at my Grandmothers house and started throwing it up against our fence in the back yard, I became pretty good but not good enough like the Master,But tried out for the local team which was Rofor Machinery who was a traveling team.I then played for the Mansulla club that traveled up into Canada and the East coast.But on Sept.24th 1981 I hit a Homerun off the greatest pitcher in my heart was Eddie. I still have the ball and brings back GREAT MEMORIES of the KING!!!! Jeffrey Mattson
7/12/11 Great fun last night in Rosemont, IL. It really demonstrated how this group has been able to entertain for 65 years and even able to carry on without Eddie. Mike Wiabel
7/3/11 Hey Rich, I want to give a big Thank You for selecting me to bat against you last Sunday in Uniontown. It was always a dream of mine to say that I got to bat against the King and his Court. You guys gave a great show and the people really enjoyed themselves. Good luck on the remainder of the season. Happy Birthday! I consider you a friend and hope to meet you again someday. Keep in touch. Take care, God Bless you, your family and the team. Sincerely, Ron Parfitt Jr (Ronnie) ________________________________________________________

6/10/11 I remember playing for the Fort Carson, Colorado All-Stars in a game in Colorado Springs, CO against the King and His Court in the summer of 1971 or 1972. We lost by a score of 5-3, I think. Precious memory of batting against Eddie. Any records? Thanks. Jack FitzGerald ________________________________________________________
6/5/11 I served our country proudly during a peace-time period and was stationed in Panama. I had the absolute pleasure to witness the incredible team that spanked a Balboa team in the Canal Zone. Thanks for the memories. Sincerely yours, Scott Walton ________________________________________________________
8/2/10 I had the distinct honor to play against Eddie Feigner and His Court in 1957 with a group of 20 All-Stars from our Rockland, MA fastpitch league. My first at bat both Jerry Jones and Mike Meilicke moved to the right side. Eddie was pitching from 2nd base and assuming if I even hit it, that\'s where it would go. I decided to bunt, the ball came in rising so fast it went off my bat and hit my chin, thinking I broke it. Eddie came running in and settled me down. Next pitch again from second and I hit a clean line drive to left for a single. Next at bat, Eddie now pitching from the mound, and knees knocking, I hit a triple, it was a dream come true, my small claim to fame had been realized. Eddie and his guys waited out a 1-2 hour rain delay to get the game in, with about 5-7,000 on hand. Just yesterday, I found the souvenir booklet he gave me that was missing for years. Eddie was a great ambassador for softball and his country. He's sadly missed. Bob Johnson
8/1/10 The King and his Court lost the only game I ever saw them play live, in the early 1970s at Thillen's Stadium in Lincolnwood, IL. An opponent smashed a drive to deep center on a pitch when the fielders were sitting down. The shortstop ran so fast after the ball that the batter was held to a double. The game's result notwithstanding, I was astounded by the skills demonstrated by Eddie and his teammates (which, at that point, may have included his son). Gary Simon
7/19/10 I grew up in a small town called Remsen NY and had the opportunity to play against the King and his Court when I played for the Remsen Mets at Prospect NY'S Fireman's Field Day's back in the late sixties. The team came to our area often and I even had my wife with me on our first date for a benifit he played at again in Prospect for a local boy whom was involved in an auto accident . Patty asked me, "where all the people came from" and all I could say was all-over, just to help this one family and that's how I remember The King and His Court. I don't play anymore but have friends with children who do and I've been very disappointed to to find so few in this area has heard of about the King and his Court and I think they would enjoy it here and now as I did in NY which seems a life time ago . Best wishes to you all.
Thanks much for some special memories. Brian Williams

6/3/10 I only say the King and His Court one time. I remember sometime in the early to mid 80's they came to Auburn, Maine, and my dad took me. They had the crowd in the palm of their hands. As a kid only 10-15 years old, I could not look away. I remember two specific memories. First he told the guest catcher... "No matter what, do not move your glove" and then the King whipped a curveball that had to have gone 3-4 feet out of line and then back to center.. right into the glove. The second memory was when he pitched a ball behind his back.. but had not let the ball out of his hand... SMACK the catcher smacked his glove, Ump called "strike" then Eddie showed the Umpire... he still had the ball... I loved the game. I was truly saddened to read that Eddie was gone, but proud to have seen that he fought, and took part right up to the end. As memorial day passed, I was also honored to know that Eddie had also served his nation... He will truly be missed. If KHC are ever in Clarksville, TN, I hope to hear that they are coming, so I can bring my son. Sincerely, Steve Collins Satisfied Fan Formy Army Medic
4/3/10 When I was a kid in the 1960's in Meriden, CT, I would run down to the ball field to see the King and His Court play. I always made sure I was the first one there and would ask to be their bat boy. Eddie, being teh gentleman that he was always said yes. 30 years later, the King and His Court came to Bristol, Ct. I took my son and his friends to see the team play. Even though this was a different generation, the boys were quite impressed. After the game I had the privilige to see Eddie in the dugout. Almost another 10 years went by and I took my grandson to see the team play. Even though Eddie was no longer playing, my grandson had a great time.

3/11/10 My memories of the King and His Court take me back to the mid 50's. Would love to see them again!

12/15/09 I would like to know if you have kept records of the games the King and his court have played? The reason I'm asking is I played against them i believe in the early 90's in Yuma Arizona. We had to recruit a high school girl to pitch for us. We were an all star team of Marines and we won that game that night. The bad thing about that night was the girl we had pitch was hit in the head with the ball. Everything is great now I was just curious about the date and score of that game! I was the coach of the marines and played shortstop! Any info would be great!

11/16/09 My ex mother-in-law who unfortunately now has a little trouble distinguishing fact from fiction claims to have been a guest pitcher for the King way back in the day she was so good that the men's teams around Toledo Ohio wouldn't let her play with them and she had to resort to going to Arizona to play women's softball. I really don't know exactly when this was, but I'm guessing it would have been about 1950. Sincerely, Bill ________________________________________________________

10/11/09 My father is 88 years old and as seen the King and his Court many times over the years and as his 6 sons grew up, they were also privileged to attend the games and be wow'ed by the performance. In our weekly conversation today (Phoenix, AZ to Toledo, OH), he brought up HKC and asked me if I could find their schedule for next spring/summer. He would travel 1 to 2 hours to see them if they are planning on being that close to Toledo, OH. Thank you very much !!

9-8-09 Bob Savage "i played for a fast pitch traveling team in lorain ohio ; it was about 1965 or so when the kings team played us to a standing crowd at subway field ;he was terrific and i hit a foul ball ha ha !!!!" ________________________________________________________ 08/17/09 David Tanis "my dad took me to see you guys back in the seventies and i still remember it today. i loved seeing you guys play and hanging out with my dad, thank you for that opportunity for both. now i coach my two daughters and try to make it as much fun as you guys have!!! thank you king and ALL your court!!!!!" __________________________________________________________ 08/13/09 Mary Wolf "i just wanted too say the one time i saw eddie play the dominoes all stars in detroit michigan or ceasers its been a long time but what i saw was one of a kind blind folding him and sticking out top players and only four guys in the field,,my uncle ralph told me go out and see them,,this was a highlight in my life ,,like seing tiger play in florida palmers course,,thank you eddie rest in peace,,kurt wolf" __________________________________________________________ 07/20/09 Steve Pitcher "I would like to say I saw Eddie play at Meco Ball Park in Meco, NY (Fulton County) during the mid to late sixties.I was probably 8-10yrs.old. My Dad was playing softball and was picked as a local all-star to play against Eddie and the Court. It was one of the best times of my childhood. My dad and the locals guys never stood a chance and they talked about it for years to come. I saw Eddie pitch again in Monticello, NY during the early to mid-1990's and although he aged quite a bit he did not lose a step. I\'ve played competitive sports all my life and grew up with 3 older brothers. When my friends and others tried to say softball was for girls I would always laugh inside and say to myself,\" If they only new Eddie ! My deepest sympathies to Eddies family and the Court and to all of those who were touched by his greatness!" __________________________________________________________ 07/20/09 Roger Evans "Dear sirs, When I was a boy in Indianapolis, my uncle would take us to see the king and his court. He would pitch from the outfield fence blind folded … take 3 balls in one hand, roll off the mound and throw to 1st 3rd and home plate … and I believe they said he threw at 127 MPH. My children don’t believe me. Could you please verify these facts in an email and make me a hero to my kids and grand kids. Thank you Roger Evans A Long Time Fan!" __________________________________________________________ 07/16/09 Brett Smith "I remember seeing Eddie and Eddie Jr. back in the late 80's back in Borger Texas. My dad took me to see them when I was young, and I still have the promo booklet that my dad bought. I just happened to get into a discussion about fast pitch softball and was recalling everything about that day. It\'s not the first time I've done so over the years. The show was just that cool. It has been a very special memory for me. I lost my dad back in Oct of 95, and I cherish this as one of my favorite trips that we made together. I'm very sorry to hear about Eddie. He was a great man. I hope you will be visiting Northern Colorado sometime soon. I would like to take my kids to see the show." __________________________________________________________ 06/13/09 Dennis Southerd "I heard about the king and his court from my neighbor.I am pleased to find the tradition is still living on.This team is one of the greatest things I've ever heard about.I am 12 years old and am planning on becoming a good fan. Kudos to you." __________________________________________________________ 03/03/09 Jessica Sweatt "Hey The King and His Court, this is Jessica Sweatt. I have missed you all so very much! I have not forgotten the inning I got to pitch for you in Marion, IL. I hope you see you soon! Love Always, Jessica" __________________________________________________________ 02/25/09 Gregg Ranchkovsky "I am writing to you because my father Nick Renchkovsky and his girls softball team (Latham Invaders or Capital District Invaders) played the King back in the 80s. I was wondering if there were any pictures or archives or anything of that sort from the game. I believe it was played at the old Heritage Park, Albany, old home of the Albany Colonie Yankees. Any information would be great. My father passed away and I am putting together a photo album. Sincerely, Gregg Renchkovsky." __________________________________________________________ 02/24/09 Kelly Phendler "Just a note to tell you I saw you your team play in V ancouver,Canada in about 1970.I'm now 47 years old and that is still one of the highlights of my childhood.Great to see your still out there doing your thing.." __________________________________________________________ 09/14/08 Dave Miller "I was lucky enough to have played against the king and his court back on 7/19/1978 in Muskegon, Mi, I batted against him twice in the game and was struck out from 2nd base but got a triple off him while pitching blind folded, it was a privledge to play against the team and something you will never forget, still have the article from the muskegon chronicle, we lost of course, thanks, Dave Miller." __________________________________________________________ 08/26/08 Judy Keane "Back in 1983-84 my husband played softball while in the Army stationed in South Korea on the Demilitarized Zone. He was on the Army's Championship Softball team at the time. He remembers the King & His Court doing a USO tour and playing his team several times while there. He said there were 6 guys on the team, the original 4 members and the son and nephew of the gentleman that started the King & His Court. Can anyone please tell me is this was possible? I don't doubt what my husband is telling me as we do have some pictures from then, but there are people at this work that will not believe him that there were ever 6 people that played on the team at that time. (they don't care if he ever played against them) I believe all 6 were on the field at one time. Just a little piece of personal trivia for my husband I'm trying to help him out with." __________________________________________________________ 08/21/08 Bob Nyby "Good morning i worked at hughes aircraft in fullerton we had a game with you in the 80's at fullerton we had a player RAY SISEMORE who played for the detroit tigers and got a chance to go up but didnt make it he got a hit off of eddie so eddie winds up and throws the ball behind his back to first base and ray is out i will never forget that BOB NYBY cal central coast." __________________________________________________________ 07/29/08 Leon Tatro "Pleasee keep the memory of the King of softball alive." __________________________________________________________ 07/17/08 Bob Ellis "had the opportunity to attend a ball game that the King and His Court played about 35 years ago. I was amazed at the skill and performance of their game. I have never forgotten it and have often wondered if Eddie were still performing. I am so glad that he was so successful and even though I only saw him one time, I became a lifetime fan. My best to the King and His Court" __________________________________________________________ 07/16/08 Debbie Eeplogle "Hi! When I was a young girl my dad took me to see the King and His Court. I would love to take my kids to see a game." __________________________________________________________ 07/15/08 Steven Ray "My name is Steven Ray. In 1976 I lived in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and my P.E. coach at DeLong Junior High had a "wickedly" fast softball pitch. He was a great coach, but an astounding pitcher. I could never remember his name, but I (and the kid who volunteered to catch the only pitch I saw him throw) will never forget him. I still talk about him today. Was my coach Eddie Feigner? If so, I'm deeply saddened by our loss. I would love to tell him how much he meant to a kid he coached years ago. BTW, he NEVER said anything about how famous he was. I respect that. " __________________________________________________________ 06/18/08 Emily Cronauer "Had the pleasure of watching the King and His Court several times, most recently inI love watching the King and His Court play. My father saw Eddie when he was a young man and took me a few years ago to see the master in action. Now I'd like to take my family to see the guys play and pass on the tradition. I was a softball pitcher myself and am always amazed and what the guys can do. Thanks for the info, can't wait to see a game!" __________________________________________________________ 06/17/08 Don Barnes "Had the pleasure of watching the King and His Court several times, most recently in 2006 in Colfax, CA, and 2007 in Grass Valley CA." __________________________________________________________ 06/13/08 Greg Wood "I saw KHC twice as a kid, and would love to take my family to see games like those.

We would love to see them again." __________________________________________________________ 05/27/08 Kevin Matheson "I saw the King and his Court in the 1980s and the subject came up as I am now a baseball/fast pitch softball Rec Coach now. I live in the upstate of SC and would love to take my children to see a game." __________________________________________________________ 05/27/08 Anthony J. Ventarola, P.E. "I am very happy to see the King and His Court still carrying on the show, despite the sad loss of Eddie. I would like to know where you are appearing for the 2008 season. I live in the Westchester County, NY area and would be willing to acquire tickets for any event in the NYC metro area." __________________________________________________________ 05/01/08 Wendy Wenberg "Hi: I don't quite know how to start this so I guess I will just jump in! I can so remember The King and His Court playing in Vancouver, B.C. in the either late 40's or sometime in the 1950's. My father, Albert (Bert) Smith, was one on B.C.'s, if not B.C.'s champion Senior "A" Softball pitcher, and later Chief of Umpires in B.C., and I can remember he and his team going against Eddie Feigner and his Court. As a young child I was enthralled, but angry because my father was the "champ" in my book, and they got royally beaten by, was it 4 men on a team? I cannot quite remember. Pretty hard to beat someone who can pitch a perfect strike from center field!! Would you know if there are any pictures of this game? I am so sorry I do not remember the exact date. My parents split up and mom was so angry with the Smith side of the family that she threw everything out of dad's. I only have his newspaper clippings, which are many, and his umpire strike/ball counter, but that is not enough to get him into Vancouver's Sports Hall of Fame. They need some equipment or a uniform. I did have his Kirk's Clothes uniform, but that got chucked, too. I don't remember any pictures of him playing against Eddie Feigner, perhaps there were. And I think there was more than one time playing them. I know it is a long shot and you probably don't have pictures, but if you do, I would love to see them and see if my father is in any of them. Thanks for "listening"...... Wendy Wenberg (nee Smith) Mission, B.C." __________________________________________________________ 04/29/08 Robert Baronich "I am 70 yrs.old. I saw The King & His Court when I was about 15 or 16 in the early 1950,s in Biloxi, Ms.I am still awed at how GREAT THEY were and still are. The very best of luck to yall." __________________________________________________________ 04/23/08 Jeff Konger "after i first saw the king all i wanted to do is to play fastpith .im 53 and awaiting a liver transplant. for 16yrs i played back in the 70s and 80s so i wanted to thank you for pointing me in the direction to play the real softball game.." __________________________________________________________ 04/10/08 Bob Waggener "I HAD SEEN HIM IN OTTAWA, IL.........I RECALL SOMETIME DURING THE GAME HE TOOK TIME TO TALK TO KIDS ABOUT THEIR LIFESTYLES..........I CANNOT RECALL IF IT WAS ABOUT GOD....CAN YOU HELP ME THERE? HE WAS A GREAT ATHLETE AND PERSON......GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU THERE." __________________________________________________________ 04/07/08 D Carley "Baldwin, NY Long live the King and His Court" __________________________________________________________ 04/06/08 Don Blazejowski "Thank You for keeping the memories alive. Don B." __________________________________________________________ 04/04/08 Carol J. Buddenhagen "My dad back -in the mid fifties was in charge of getting Eddie and the Court to come to Bedford Ohio for a few summers to raise funds for charity for the Bedford Lions Club I was an avid Softball player and was lucky enough to be picked to play on an All Star team to play against the KHC what an honor! In my final at bat against Eddie I managed to get the only hit of the game for our team -a lucky blooper over second base (which would of been a routine out with a nine man team) I broke my bat doing so and I still have it and it brings back many memories. I was the opposing catcher against Eddie and after the game he asked me to catch him for a demonstration of some of his many pitches I admit I was scared a little but Eddie calmed me down and I caught every pitch he threw ---- even his " Fast-Fast Ball" Unbelievable!!! Thanks much for the chance to say a few words about Eddie- he is truly missed Sincerly Earle Buddenhagen Solon Ohio." __________________________________________________________ 02/17/08 Thomas Cevora "My father, Jim Cevora had the honor of playing against Eddie Feigner while he was in the Navy. I don't remember the date but it was in the late 80's. I would like it if you guys can find the date that they played. His team was FTC, and they played in Norfolk, Virginia. I have very fond memories of that day and wish to remember them again, I know Eddie has passed and my father did shed a tear at that. He pitched fastpitch softball for over 20 years in the Navy. God be with the King and His Court. He will never be forgotten in our memories. Thank you Thomas Cevora" __________________________________________________________ 02/04/08 Codge Bonner "Richie, God bless you and yours! I can still hit you like I owned you! Codge" __________________________________________________________ 01/28/07 Bill Cowin "I was born in 1946 in Walla Walla, Washington, and followed as best I could the KHC all my life. In 1968 or 1969, I played on a local fastpitch team and Meade Kinzer was the "manager" I noticed that the bios said that he played until 1968. It seemed to me he had recently retired when I played for him. Please "correct" me. Thanks. Greetings to Mary. I am the pastor she talked to about my memories of The King in Niles, MI, on the Farewell Tour. Bill Cowin" __________________________________________________________ 01/22/07 John DiDonato "Long Live the King and His Court!" __________________________________________________________ 01/04/07 Dewayne Sloan "I have had the privilege to see KHC twice in my life. I'm not sure what year they were, but I saw you the first at a fundraiser in White House, Tennessee and the second time you were at a Nashville Sounds game. I didn't know at the time what a special thing that I was witnessing, but since then I have told a lot of people about you and your team. I hope that you will be back around middle Tennessee, southern Kentucky so that I can bring my kids to see your show." __________________________________________________________ 11/08/07 Mike Terhaar "I had the pleasure of seeing the King and his Court play the Minnesota Vikings at Parade Stadium in Minneapolis in I think 1967. I was in awe then of the Kings skills. In the early 90’s I was traveling through Wausau, Wisconsin and saw the King and his Court vehicles parked in the same motel I was staying at. It brought back pleasant memories. I am sorry to hear of his passing. Eddie was a true legend." __________________________________________________________ 10/23/07 Tony Roybal "Will you ever play in Las Vegas, NV. Or have you? This sounds like alot of fun. GO KHC. Tony." __________________________________________________________ 10/12/07 Jim Nunn "I played softball slow pitch in Korea 1975, we had a fellow on the team that was great, We called him "Orbit Williams" he hit a homer at almost every at bat and played 3rd base 1/2 way between 3rd and home, also pitched sometimes from 2nd. Said that he used to play for the King. Just wonder???? was he ever on the roster or was he just good?" __________________________________________________________ 10/08/07 george a boxen jr "I HAD THE PLEASURE TO HAVE SEEN THE "KING" 2 TIMES AND HAVE NEVER EVER SEEN ANYTHING LIKE IT AGAIN. HE WAS JUST SOMETHING THAT I CANNOT EXPLAIN. I HAVE TOLD MY STORY TO THOSE WHO NEVER HEARD OF THEM, AND MANY DO NOT BELIEVE WHEN I TELL THEM WHAT HE COULD DO. WHAT A WONDERFUL PLEASURE IT WAS TO WITNESS SUCH AN AWSOME FEAT. GEORGE A BOXEN JR." __________________________________________________________ 09/30/07 Susan Skomorucha "I'm not quite sure how to related to you how much you and your players have touched my life. I first saw a King and His Court softball game when I was probably around 10 years old and living in Chester, Pennsylvania. I seem to remember that the game was held at the then Pennsylvania Military Academy (PMC). My sister took me to see it and I was just in awe! So much so that we returned for numerous games. I literally had an immediate crush on one of your players - Jim Herrick. I was star struck! Jim was more my sister's age of course. He was from Huntington Beach, CA. What a great guy and he was so kind and warm hearted and genuine. I remember getting a softball signed by the team, including Eddie of course. Jim and I struck up a friendship and he became my pen pal. We exchanged letters while he was on the road. Eventually, Jim was drafted and went to Vietnam. Thorough his service tours, Jim and I exchanged letters and what were then treasurers for a little girl - such as an australian bush hat, pictures, etc. I was always trying to get Jim and my sister together so that he could become part of our family. Unfortunately, after a couple of years, we just lost touch with each but I often think about what road his life has taken. Your organization is very special to me. I loved the games and the clean family fun that we enjoyed. The players were all so skilled and professional and such gentlemen and they treated young fans such as myself with such warm, kind-hearted, genuine interest and respect. I just wanted you to know how special you and the KHC organization was to me in my childhood and the wonderful memories that I have of you and the KHC games. Regards, Susan (Scarloss) Skomorucha" __________________________________________________________ 09/21/07 John DiDonato "My memories of Eddie Feigner & the King and His Court is in the late 70's when they came to the Bronx from 1977-1979 at the Castle Hill Beach Club (1931-1985). They always gave a show, especially J.R. Feigner & some of his routines." __________________________________________________________ 09/03/07 Richard "Magoo" McGill "I grew up in Huntsville, Al. where we got to see The King and His Court in the 60's. I've been a fan ever since. The only time I saw them again was on tv. Then, in Anchorage, Ak., I got to be the base umpire for 2 games on Eddie Feigners 1999 Farewell Tour. It is something I will never forget. One of my most prized possessions is my autographed softball by The King and His Court. I have since moved to Louisiana and hope to see the new King and His Court in person in the very near future." __________________________________________________________ 07/18/07 Joe Busto "Hi- I grew up watching Eddie (and eventually Eddie Jr.) when they'd come to my home town (Royal Oak, MI) and I was surprised to see the family tradition has been kept alive. I have since moved to CA from MI and would like to know what your schedule is for this month for Southern California. Thanks-Joe Busto" __________________________________________________________ 07/18/07 Joe Busto "Hi- I grew up watching Eddie (and eventually Eddie Jr.) when they'd come to my home town (Royal Oak, MI) and I was surprised to see the family tradition has been kept alive.

LeMaster "Dear Mr. Feigner: I'm nearly 72 now, but when I was a young boy of about 12, I had the distinct pleasure of watching you and your court perform in San Angelo, Texas. My father drove us all the way from Odessa to see you. At that time, both my beloved father and his nephew (Master Sergeant James H. Harris) assured me that this opportunity to see you pitch was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, -- and they were absolutely right. You were and are absolutely phenomenal. Your site directed that if there was a question that it would be answered in a few days. But Mr. Feigner, any question that I might ever have had was more than answered by the God-given talent that you honed so professionally and have maintained throughout all these years. God bless you, my friend. And may Heaven's Great Umpire be as impressed with you as I have always been. Sincerely, Dr. David R. LeMaster Lt. Col., USAF Retired " __________________________________________________________ 06/30/07 Deanne Ward "I took my softball team to see the King many years ago.

A legend in deed." __________________________________________________________ 06/24/07 Jody Johnson Walunas "My dad was a personal friend of the KHC when they were just beginning. As a little girl I would go with him to there games. I would love to recall the names of some of the earlier players. Can you send me a list of some of the players in the 50's and 60's.

Are there any scheduled games in the Philadlephia, PA area? Thank you. Carolyn Soccio," __________________________________________________________ 05/31/07 Kenny "doc" Nolan "I was not aware that Eddie had died. A great loss, especially for all of us who played against him, long ago. I pitched against him in 1981 at an event in Union County, New Jersey. We were all hand picked as an all star team to face the King. The team in those days was Eddie's son J.R. at short, John Baker as catcher, and I must admit, I forget who the other guy was. We actually thought we had a chance of beating the King. Eddie was on his third game of the day, so we thought we'd catch him tired and slow.... WRONG! Even though I was the pitcher, I led off that day. I remember Eddie standing on the mound with his stocky pot-bellied body smilin' at me, as I dug in. I was pur dee serious... I squared up and waited for the first pitch. Eddie went into his motion and let fly.... I never saw the ball cross the plate, but I heard it sizzle by. I stepped out and turned back to the ump and asked, What the hell was that????? The Ump smiled at me, stuck out a finger, and said: STRIKE ONE ! I struck out on that at bat, but my pitching kept us in the game. They were only up 2-0 going into the seventh inning. I led off the bottom half and bunted,,, it was the only way I could figure out how to get on. Eddie was pissed, so he promptly gassed the side, and left me standing on first. After it was all over, we all repaired to the local VFW hall, for the after party. If you were lucky enough to be the King's last game in those days, you were fortunate enough to hang out with him and hoist a few. And hoist a few Eddie could..., like the jarhead he was. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. Even though I lost the game. A few years later I had the chance to visit him at his home near Escondito CA. After giving me some invaluable pitching instruction... Edie, Me and J.R. repaired to a local mexican place for food and drink. We ate like kings, and drank "black velvet" whiskey until we were all blotto. I'll never figure out to this day, how I got back to Laguna Beach In closing, I'd like to emphasize that Eddie Feigner was one of a kind... The P.T Barnum of fast-pitch softball. But unlike P.T., he did not rely on trickery, or illusions to make his point. He just stood out there with 4 other men, and dared you to beat him. When I was lucky enough to know him, the old Eddie Feigner was a better pitcher on any day than the best ace in your so-called fast pitch league. Besides that, He was a master showman and entertainer. And a super nice person, who was generous with his talent, imparting it down to rooks like me. Plus... He was a hell of a good guy. I'll miss ya Eddie. The King and His Court live on. But it ain't quite the same without the real King." __________________________________________________________ 05/22/07 Thomas "Chip" Moran "I had the honor and privilege of playing against Eddie many times, and watching many more times over. He was the epitimy of a true gentleman, competitor, and ambasador of fastpitch softball his entire life. Along with John Wayne, my dad, Eddie was my other "hero", and I had the honor of beating him twice, he was and will always be the "King" to me.. Chip Moran USAF 1966-1987" __________________________________________________________ 04/17/07 Les Barber "Gentlemen all the very best for a great year, my Prayers are with you and your Families.

I remember vividly Edie playing the Peekskill All-stars when I was 12 years old.... some 46 yrs ago! Pitching from 2nd base was amazing as was you almost picking off a runner on 1st (no more than 3 steps off the bag) behind your back!! These are great memories and I thank you for them. I repeat your heroics often to my friends. I wish you the very best!! __________________________________________________________

I saw Eddie play a county all-star team in Keene, NH back in the mid 50s. I still remember Eddie's first pitch. The leadoff batter simply dropped his bat and looked at the sky. It was an extraordinay and memorable game. __________________________________________________________

My uncle Peanuts, who isnow 87 years old, often talks about when the King came to Buffalo. My uncle's team played the king back in the late 40s or early 50s. My uncle ofter boasts that he was able to "beat" the King, batting on his knees yet! Wondered if anyone rememers that, expecially Eddie. When he heard about Eddie's book he wondered if it would be mentioned in it. I told him I doubted it, but am going to buy the book for him anyway. I was amazed to find that the King & his Court were still touring. If they are ever here in the Buffalo area I will have to try & take him. Best of Everything to you! __________________________________________________________

Eddie - We just ordered your book and DVD for our son, Kelly Fliear who worked with you on the Big Island of Hawaii where you performed a few years ago. He is a true baseball fan (still playing softball and will be 50 next September) and he was so proud to have had the opportunity to meet and work with you. The first thing he did was call me about that event as he knew I was a big fan of yours. I saw you in the late 40's or early 50's in Sheldon, Iowa where you performed to your usual full house. My best to you and your family -- Semper Fi from another former Marine! Galen Fliear Donnie Chmielowiec Kansas City Mo __________________________________________________________

Anyway i never forget those shows,the king and his court are truly the most remarkable team in sports history!If you are in the NY area this year i would like to find out where? I have some youngsters who would be amazed! Just received your book and video and can't wait to read it. Mr Feigner you truly are the King!

I am 50 years old and just got done telling some workers about Eddie. They never heard of him nor believed the things he can do with a softball. When I was a kid, my dad took me several times in NY to see the Court play. I have beeen fascinated all my life from the memories I have from the games. My dad was a windmill pitcher and taught me. I don't know his name but god bless the catcher who stood behind the plate for Eddie! Thanks for the wonderful lifetime memories.

Greetings Eddie: It was great to see you again in San Bernardino. My best wishes for happy health in the future. In my younger days I caught for the CP Merchants in College Place. I believe you knew my uncle John Willey, he at least knew Mike Meilicke, Meade Kinzer and Jerry Jones. And I remembered we played the King and His Court behind the elementary school there in College Place. You asked me to come to your home and warm you up in your back backyard. I've never caught a pitcher like you before or since. I really like the fast pitch...it not only moves, it sings through the air. The rise and drop were also impressive. A few weeks afterwards we went to a pitching exhibition during half-time basketball game in Columbia Auditorium. You held the microphone and talked to the crowd about pitching. You threw a few pitches. Then came the time for the fast ball (and I dreaded it a little because of any pitch you presented this one had the greatest chance to get loose) Sure enough I missed it as it went over my glove by a half inch traveling 432 miles per hour (or so it seemed). It hit a young lad behind me sitting on the stage. He turned his head and dropped to the floor about four feet. But before we could get to him he was up on his feet, the crowd cheered and we went in the locker room and changed out of the King and His Court uniform. Eddie you are an inspiration and my cheers!!!

Beth Kirk Pasco, WA 10-3-2005 08:18 AM
I just wanted to say thank you to the King and His Court for taking the time to stop in Eastern WA. Because of you my dad Sully got the opportunity to pitch again, something I never thought he would get to do. I grew up watching him play against the very best in Fastpitch. Since he will turn 70 in Dec. I thought his pitching days were over. But you all gave him one more chance, and best of all his grandchildren got to watch him. Pitching against you gave him a taste of years gone by and gave his family a glimpse into his past. He loves the game and since his retirement spends his time giving pitching lessons to girls ages 5-20's. His way of giving back to a game that has given him so much. I know he loved being on the mound again, but the conversations with you all after the game discussing the superstars of the game meant so much to him. Being able to talk to others who actually knew them as he had was great. Thank you once again and I hope you return to our neck of the woods again soon. __________________________________________________________
Joe Pickering Jr. Bangor, Maine 9-30-2005 09:19 PM
Dear King and Queen: It was a thrill to meet and have dinner with you when you came to Bangor. I have seen you pitch several times as early as the 1950's I more than fondly recall The King pitching blindfolded from second base and throwing fast balls that hardly anyone could see but oh everyone could hear the ball make a super smack into the catcher's mitt! It was a deep priviledge to write a song called From an Orphan to a King which is a mini song about the life of Eddie Feigner! No song could do you justice but I hope it catches a glimpse of your brilliance on the softball field and in the sports world and beyond. There is one and never will be another Eddie Feigner. You are much more than a sports figure you are a man that has created, stirred,rekindled millions of memories in all of us who have been honored to see and meet you and your lovely talented wife Anne Marie. __________________________________________________________

King, Anne Marie, We played you on September 1, 2005 in Pasco, WA. We were the old guys, and I am the Director of Boys & Girls Clubs. We had a great time and enjoyed everything about the experience. Dennis, who played on your team, is still talking about it. Thank you for the opportunity and we wish you the best. Greg Falk __________________________________________________________

G'day to the Court! My brothers had me learn much of your great endeavour when I was young. They had one of the actual coats which you men used to wear, saw you play a number of times and had programs and autographs to showcase their fondness for you. I grew up in a home with 6 children, 5 boys. Many sports, but baseball was tops for me. So it was quite a shock when I later discovered we had in our possession a framed portrait and the official plaque (designating all the achievements) of Al Jackson. It was acquired through an auction of some kind, though now as I am older, I want nothing more than be able to return these items to its rightful owner. I am not even sure if Al is alive anymore or not. If someone from the current or past teams could please reach me via email, I can pass along my telephone number, and we can begin the process of delivering these memories back to where they are most desired. Thank you and all the best in the coming season. Cheers, .s __________________________________________________________

Bob Syme North Bay, Ontario, Canada 9-12-2005 06:39 PM
Eddie; You, Anne Marie and the team played North Bay a few weeks ago. I told you about an experience I had when I was 13 years old. In 1948 you played a game in Calgary Alberta. My dad was commanding officer of the Royal Canadian Air Force base there and invited you to give a pitching demonstration to the base team and air force members that afternoon at the base. He also invited you to dine with us at home after the demonstration. You accepted both invitations and after dinner you asked me to be your batboy for the game downtown that evening. What a thrill I had being there watching you pitch that game. It has been a wonderful,lasting memory for the past 57 years. Thank you for that. I know many other youngsters will have had the same thrill as me. You have touched the hearts of many folks. God Bless you for that. __________________________________________________________
Dr. Bruce Conforth Ann Arbor, Michigan 9-9-2005 07:01 AM
Dear Mr. Feigner, I was so happy to find this site. Some of my fondest memories of childhood are seeing you pitch in the late '50s and early '60s at Hinchcliff Stadium in Paterson, New Jersey. You were in your prime and I can recall how, as you were warming up, the gasps from the crowd would increase as did the speed of your delivery. No matter where you sat in the stadium the crack of your fastball hitting the catcher's glove was incredible. I can still recall how impossible it was even to see your fastball from the stands. You would wind up, deliver, and an instant later there was that loud crack! No one ever saw the ball. Not only did you always mow down every team I saw you face, but you always ended with an inspirational message about the things one can achieve. I like to think it helped me get where I am today, teaching at the University of Michigan. It was such a joy racing down onto the field after the game to get you your autograph on your program. Sadly those have disappeared over the years, but you are still an inspiration. God bless you and your family. __________________________________________________________

Eddie, We just finished reading your book. It is wonderful! I have seen you play about a half dozen times over the years including the game vs. major league all stars on television. It is a shame that video was lost. (WAY before VCR's!) I spent twenty-five years in the US Navy and saw you play three different times at three different bases. You always put on a good show. I hope you will be posting a list of locations where you will play next year. It would be a pleasure and an honor to see you once more and shake your hand. You are truly one of the all time great atheletes and one of the greatest pitchers ever (not just SOFTBALL pitchers). Take care, God bless you in the years ahead. Semper FI James M.

Eddie & Family, After a recent move I was unpacking and came across a program from a 1968 benefit stop in New Ulm, MN. It brought back great memories... New Ulm is a real baseball hotbed and your stop really was awesome. My dad Ray was on the challenging team along with Dick Hudson, Randy Walker and Les Dietrich. These players were truly the best of the best in southern MN fastpitch softball. The show was unforgetable, thanks for the memories! __________________________________________________________

Rev. Paul Blizard Beckley, West Virginia 8-18-2005 06:00 PM
I enjoyed the game. However, I wanted to ask the "king" if he knew the Lord. As he signed my poster, I asked him if he was saved. He replied, "you can't know that until the end of time." When I told him that he could know now, he repeated his statement. Pray for Eddie that the "king" will meet the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. You can know you are saved now by asking Jesus to forgive you of your sins and inviting him into your heart. My prayer is for Eddie to be saved.

The King and His Court just finished a trip to North Bay, Ontario Canada. Were supposed to play Aug. 9th but a nasty storm postponed it until the next day (they were gracious enough to stay another day to get the game in for the fans). Had a wonderful time visiting with the Court after the rain-out on the 9th and again when I played against them on the 10th. They invited my son Steven to be their bat boy which was great thrill for him (and me). All of the Court are genuinely nice people and we really enjoyed seeing them again in North Bay. Thank you for the memories!! __________________________________________________________

When my husband heard that you were still in the "industry" he began to tell me that his father played against you in Northern Quebec way back in the days. My father in-law Edward (Ed) Bettiol used to be a pitcher and played against you. I was told that he never had a glove. My husband told me that he Ed played against you and one of those games he got into a fight with you (that's how he would always handle conflict) It's so interesting to hear these stories and thought you would like to read this. All the best to you!

In the early 1980's I played ball for WBBQ Radio station in North Augusta, SC. We had the pleasure of playing a warm-up game for the crowd who later was treated to a game featuring The King and His Court. During the feature game, Mr. Feigner demonstrated his deadly accuracy by picking off a runner from 1st base with a blind, behind-the-back bullet to his first baseman. The runner was absolutely flat-footed and was out by 2 steps. Amazing! The highlight was the pitching exhibition by The King after their game. The last time I saw that kind of accuracy, it involved target practice with a sniper rifle. Mr. Feigner, Congratulations on 60 years! You are truly THE BEST.

I first saw the "King" when I was a score keeper for the HLR Fast Pitch softball team in the early 70's. It was then that I met Hoppe. The King was awesome then and awesome now. God Bless -Stay well.

In the mid 60's my Dad took me to see you play when you were in Ottawa (a couple of times). I was quite the Daddy's girl and loved going anywhere with him, but this outing has stayed with me all these years! Dad explained to me that in the late 40's he had played against you and that you were amazing (not likely - my Dad was the BEST!!) - well I was wrong, and you really had him beat when it came to playing ball!! I am sorry I missed you when you came on July 17, but opted out because I probably would have turned into a blubbering idiot with the flood of good memories that would have come back at me. You see, Dad passed away in 1984 and I still miss him terribly, and watching you play ball would have put me back in that happy (and very misty eyed) place! Thank you so much for doing what you do and bringing so many good memories to all that are priveledged enough to experience your talent!!! __________________________________________________________

Back in the late 60's my Dad took me to see The King and His Court in Staten Island NY. I just took my son to see the show in Port Perry Ontario, so we've come full circle...and it was a blast. The talent and showmanship (and show "woman" ship) were extremely entertaining. If you're looking for a good fun night out you can't beat it. And in this age of superstar athletes who don't have the courtesy to give fans the time of day it was great seeing the players talking to the kids, signing autographs and just making themselves available long after the game was over. The team you guys played in Port Perry had some pretty good talent, and I could see Hoppe's competitive fire....but he never lost sight of "the show"...The banter by all the players was great. Amazing show guys...if you're out this way next year I'll be there. __________________________________________________________
Deb Hines Lynn, MA 8-2-2005 01:17 PM
Many years ago, The King and His Court came to Lynn for a show. My dad took my brother and I, and at the time I thought it was just going to be another boring softball game but he promised me that this one would be different. Now it's probably 25+ years later and the King is returning to Lynn so I called my Dad and asked him to go. I don't remember all the details of the day then, but what I do remember is being amazed at the show and spending a beautiful night with my Dad. __________________________________________________________

Hello- I was staying at The Days Inn on 7/30 in PA and wanted to meet you and ask for your autograph but the clerk at the desk was unable to give me a room number due to hotel policy. He did give me your poster that was advertising your appearance against The Mt.Olive All-Stars and I was wondering if there was an address I could send this to for you to sign. Thanks for all the legendary moments you have provided over the years!

Just wanted to say that I had the pleasure to see the 'Court' several years ago in Cleveland and it was a very special and treasured time for me. When I was younger, I remember my dad telling me about a fabled man who was so good at softball that he and only a couple other players would take on whole other teams and win. For the longest time I chalked it up as exaggerated tales that he told to spark my imagination. When I was living in Cleveland at the time I saw Mr. Feigner, I couldn't believe it. I bought a program, sent it my dad and we shared a laugh. He was so happy. Thank you Mr. Feigner for not only being my childhood fantasy hero but now my real-life hero. All my best!

Just saw the news asking for a sponsor to bring King and his court to Victoria and Vancouver, BC. I do hope it happens. I watched the team in Calgary in the early 1960's and couldn't believe my eyes. The pitcher stood blindfolded on second base and pitched all 3 batters out! Amazing. The guys had such antics and played around we laughed and laughed. They held a reputation of always winning and sure enough, they won the best team Calgary had to offer. Remember, there were only 4 of King and his court! Great entertainment. __________________________________________________________

Matt Biggs Newport News, VA 7-22-2005 08:39 PM
I was just a toddler then, but The King and His Court came to play my dad's team at Fort Carson, CO in 1975 if I remember right. My dad got to bat and of course Eddie struck him out. Neat thing is that my dad is in his mid-50's and is still going strong as a pitcher and was a multiple state champion in Montana. He's still going after over 30 years and still winning, mostly trying to keep men's fastpitch softball alive in Montana. Tonight I talked to him to recall what it was like facing The King. I hope I get to see an appearance again before Eddie hangs it up. __________________________________________________________

Mr. Feigner, I just received your book and I would like to thank you for personally signing it.

God Bless you and your family and thank you for all the great memories. __________________________________________________________

It was an honour to see you again Eddie. I saw you play in Saskatoon 35 years ago and witnessed first hand your awesome pitching display. As mortals we grow old, but the legend lives on, the stories continue to be told about the greatest pitcher in the game bar none. It is unfortunate that todays young people could not have been around at the time to witness the skills that have made you a legend. God Bless You. __________________________________________________________

The thrill of my life was playing a game as Eddie's shortstop back in 1967 or 68. I was stationed at Roosevelt Roads Naval Airstation and Eddies shortstop and catcher missed a flight so were unable to play. I was to play against Eddie but duty status forced me to give up my spot. When I was let go early from duty I rushed to the field to watch the game and to my surprise I got to play, not against but for The King. Thanks for the great memory. __________________________________________________________

I was new to past pitch softball back in 1968 while stationed at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida. I made the base team and after a few weeks playing, I was told one of our next games was against Eddie Faigner of the King and His Court. I had no idea what I was into. I got a hit - a slow dribbler down the 3rd base line that any 3rd baseman would have gobbled up, but he doesn't have one. Next time up, Eddie strikes me out blindfolded from 2nd base. Thanks for the great memories Eddie - some moments you never forget. __________________________________________________________

I am 62 years old, and I saw you play in Waukegan, IL and Kenosha, WI. My brother learned alot about pitching from your book. We played in our 20's for 8 years in Waukegan City League. My brother pitched and I caught. I really loved the game and sorry it died out in the area. We played softball along from 16inch to 12inch slow pitch. You are great and would like to see the King and His Court again. __________________________________________________________

A fellow employee was discussing his softball league and I told hime about this team called The King and His Court that I had seen several times growing up in the 60's & 70's at the Max Meyers Playground in Philadelphia. It made me recall an amazing display of athleticism that impressed me so much. I looked forward to their every return just to witness their incredible talents and antics. Most times I was at the field by myself and would stand close to the team and was able to hear them do their thing because the stands were only a few feet behind their bench. Little did I know that I was watching sports history and, unfortunately, never took a picture to capture it. My memory has never been good - yet I vividly recall the team's performances. You guys were, and will always be, the best. Thank you for being you and may you continue to bring joy, inspiration and excitement to both older fans and new. I will never forget you.

Because of circumstances unforseen I could not get to any of the games in Florida this year, which depressed me so since I have been trying to get to one. My friend who is from Wisc and help take her schools fast pitch team to state, who also pitches no hitter endings once open for the King and his Court- she now lives here in Florida and talks highly of him and his team. So since I have missed FLorida's games and this is a farewell tour- Can someone please give me information on the one in Jacksonville NC sch'd for August. I would love to go and take her with me to see him. Thank you __________________________________________________________

I still remember I sat right near first base. "What a surprise that runner got when you pitched that ball behind your back and threw him out. WOW.

I played against Ed at Thelen Stadium in Chicago in 1958. We were one of the best fastpitch softball teams in Milwaukee,WI at the time. He, of course, beat us 9-2. I faced him 3 times in rhe game. The first time he struck me out blindfoled, then 2nd time he struck me out from 2nd base. The last time up he piched to me from center field and I someout got a hit.He also pitched to others on my team by throwing the ball behind his back. I played baseball for 4 years in high school, but switched to fastpitch softball after high school. The game is much quicker & more fun.Playing against Ed was the highlight of my career. Thanks, Bob Bauch __________________________________________________________

Eddie Feigner, the pitcher and founder of The King and His Court fastpitch four person softball team, would, in my humble opinion, make a great theme for a pinball machine. But it appears Stern is the last venue of possibly creating one. If you still make a few per year, consider this as the theme. Visit www.kingandhiscourt website to contact Eddie's wife, Anne Marie if this could become a product of yours. Eddie Feigner is an American legend, and Evel Knieval (who is a theme of a pinball machine from Bally that I own) modeled his uniform after Eddie Feigner's. Eddie is also a friend of Gordie Howe, who also has a machine themed after him. Just adding a thought to your company.

Dear Mr. Feigner, I was blessed to see you pitch three times in the late sixties/early seventies in the Philadelphia area. Twice against the great George Ulmer of Flatiron fame. Your skills were amazing. Your showmanship was wonderful. Those games are beautiful memories for me and my Dad who is now eighty. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world and providing all who watched you perform with memories for a lifetime. God bless you.

Larry Lego Sun Prairie WI 6-4-2005 04:09 AM
Saw your team for the first time on May 31, in Madison WI, but I have heard of you for many years. I bought your book, and have already read it. I grew up in the same era as Eddie writes about. I threw stones at streetlights too, and polished my skills on the sandlots of America. Eddie needs a pinball machine made with The King and His Court as the theme. All the greats have had one made after them, even Gordie Howe (registered name). Contact Bally in Chicago and give them the idea, I am sure you will be given artistic input. I would love to play this pinball game (the flippers could be replicas of bats, a fast pitch ball chute could be a feature, Annie Marie could be the "babe" they always have on the backglass (no offense Annie Marie), etc). My only regret is that I never got to play/bat against Mr. Feigner, that would have been so cool even if I would have been striked out. God Bless you all, it was a real treat to me a fan of yours forever, seeing you play. __________________________________________________________

Mr. Feigner, Thank You Very Much for hours of entertainment you have brought to our family over the years. Our whole family would come to to see The King and His Court at Hinchliffe Stadium in Paterson, NJ. The teams entertainment style and your pitching ability will always be something I will remember. The last time I saw you pitch was in Wayne, NJ, Playing the local Ford Dealership Team. At that time, I noticed that you were having trouble with your knees. My father had knee replacement surgery just prior to your game in Wayne. To his credit, he was in the grandstands that night with us. I hope that if you had the same surgery, that you are doing as well as he has. I look forward to seeing you in Mt Olive, NJ in July. My family and I wish you a very Happy Birthday and a Very Sucessful 2005 Tour. Thank You , Russ __________________________________________________________

David Willey Oak Park,, Il 5-17-2005 09:56 PM
King, I can't believe you are still pitching, that is amazing!! I played against you in West Warwick RI about 27 years ago. You were an old timer then! I like to tell anybody that knows anything about softball that I have a .500 career average vs. the King. Unless someone asks I always forget to mention that my career average was based on one lucky hit in two at bats. I got the hit the first time up and the next time up you decided to show me who was boss and struck me out on three pitches that I missed by at least a foot. I remember that I thought each pitch was belt high but all 3 were over my head. I have wondered for all these years if you really made the ball rise. It sure seemed like it. It was great fun and and honor to play against you and your team. You are a great showman.Your pitching skill cannot be adequately described with words. One had to see it and when I saw it you were about 55 years old. I can't imagine how good you must have been at 25. Thanks for the memories.Which reminds me I don't think Iever told me 16 year old son I hit .500 against you. I am going to do that right now! And when I have grand children I will tell them too. Thanks again.Good luck on your farewell tour. David Willey __________________________________________________________

I got to hang out with the King and his wife. They are two of the most wonderful people out there. They are both pationate about the game and their fans. I have learned alot from them while I was with them. They taught me alot about the game. I hope they have a safe and wonderful tour this summer. God bless them, their famalies, and the team.

I saw the King and his court in Huntington, WV in 1991. What an amazing show! I was happily surprised to see that they are returning to our are and I am looking forward to see the show again in Beckley this summer. Rich Hoppe was the highlight of a rain-filled evening 14 years ago. Thanks for sharing your gift with the world! Stacy Hunter

I played against the King on a football field in Bedford, Ohio. He struck me out twice, but I did get 2 foul tips. He shut us out, but he threw a change up to one of our players and he hit a triple to right field. Needless to say he died on third. __________________________________________________________

I met Eddie when I was 12or13yrs old which would of been 1975 or76 in Fort Erie Ont Canada. He played against my hardball coaches team Roland Daku who played for the Stevensville Firefighters. I remember they tied 2-2 and after Eddie asked to see me as I had already noticed him in the crowd in some of my league games earlier in the week. He told me I was good enough to play for his team some day. Well Im 42 yrs old now and met alot of good ballplayers in my life but noone near as good as Eddie Feighner. Now im doing artwork for charities and almost have a doodle done of Eddie if anyone has his address I would like to send him a copy. __________________________________________________________

In December 1999 my family drove to San Diego, California from Red Oak, Texas to get pitching lessons for our daughters, Lisa and Jamie. They were 14 and 12. We spent 3 days in San Diego and struck up a great friendship with the King and Ann Marie. We went to the San Diego Zoo, swimming at the beach and played some golf. Both Eddie and Ann Marie have mean putting strokes. Ann Marie and Eddie encouraged my daughters to play golf even if they were busy with softball. One week after returning from California I (Karin) was diagnosed with Colon Cancer. Through my treatments we continued to stay in touch with Eddie and Ann Marie even going to some of their tour events when they came to Texas and having them to dinner one night at our home in Red Oak. Today, 5 years later I am cancer free and our youngest daughter, Jamie is 18 and just became District Champion on her High School golf team. She shot an 89 the first day and an 82 the second. We have been so blessed to be able to call Eddie and Ann Marie our friends. We thank them for their support and encouragement of our daughters through their sports endeavors. __________________________________________________________

I couldn't believe Mr. Feigner was still pitching. I have seen three games during my tenure in the military and they were definitely a highlight and a treasure I will always remember. Thanks for providing an excellent example of sportsmanship and love for humanity. I hope your recovery goes well.
Angel F. Almodovar Yauco, Puerto Rico 4-6-2005 10:21 AM
First time I saw this 4 man team The King and His Court I was 7 years old. I saw the team on a visit you pay to a small town called Sabana Grande in Puerto Rico.I believe the year was 1978 maybe '79. I became an instant fan then and there and as a matter of fact I still have the teams souvenier magazine my father bought that night. I must say it is one of my favorite memories from my childhood. I am 34 now and a softball player. And it is my dream of someday meeting the team and maybe even playing against it. That sure would be something else for me. __________________________________________________________

I had the honor and priveledge of playing against the "King and His Court" this past Saturday night in Altamonte Springs, FL. It was truly a memorable experience as I had hoped to face the King as a college player in the early 80's in Georgia but our coach wouldn't let us! Anyway, after 24 years I finally got my chance and lined out hard on a 2/1 count. The joy and sacrifice that the King and His Court bring to the game and to the event is very special and you are the greatest ambassadors of the game in history. May God Bless you all Eddie, Ann Marie, Jack, Rich and Dave! Thanks for all the special memories!!! windsor,ontario.canada

My dad brought me to see The King and His Court in Gulf Breeze, FL back in the late 70's. The park that I watched you guys at has since been destroyed by Hurricane Ivan. Last night, I brought my son and a friend of his to see ya'll in Pensacola. Your show was as incredible as ever. Non only that, but you helped to raise funds for Rebuild Northwest Florida, an organization that is coordinating the several year effort to get this part of Florida back on its feet after Hurricane Ivan. There are still several hundered people who can't return to their homes because of the damage. Last night's game gave us all an evening of laughter, and another reason to come together as a community. You are all great role models as well. Thank you very much. __________________________________________________________

Thanks to each of you for a wonderful show in Newnan, Georgia March 30, 2005. I saw the King play in Carrollton,Ga. as a very young person and have never forgotten it. Tuesday night has the town buzzing about the show. It was as great as I remember it from many years ago. A special thank you for taking so much time with my young pitchers for photos and autographs. These will forever be prized possessions of a night to long remember. God Bless You All and may your 60th tour be a great one.
Dave Walker Edmond OK 3-30-2005 09:54 PM
I hadn't thought about Mr. Feigner in forever. I'm 40 now, and I saw The King and His Court when I was about 10 years old, at a Navy Base in Virginia. I remember clearly what an amazing day that was. If my memory isn't playing tricks on me, I believe I saw him strike out a man while pitching from second base, blindfolded. It brought back great memories to be reminded of the King. Congratulations, Mr. Feigner, on still getting it done. You're wonderful, a national treasure. __________________________________________________________
John Cook Newnan, Georgia 3-30-2005 05:19 AM
The King and His Court, Thank you so much for making our girls softball team, Georgia Pride, and the entire City of Newnan, Georgia the very first stop on your 60th Anniversary Tour. It was a great honor and pleasure to meet each one of you. The crowd just couldn't get enough of the softball and of the antics of you and the guys. I have to admit that after 40+ years of playing baseball and softball, striking out against Rich Hoppe (hey, I did foul one off) was the most memorable moment in my ball playing life. I never saw the third strike!! Jack is a great showman! I have never seen a man his age do a better belly slide into second. Dave hit the ball so hard that it looked like a pancake the last time I saw it. Anne Marie, thank you so much for letting Savannah be your bat girl. See has not stopped talking about it since she left the ballfield. The King and His Court are the CLASS OF THE FIELD. I could stick around for hours and listen to Eddie tell the stories of his life. Thank you all for making March 29, 2005 a night that will live in the minds of hundreds of my friends in Newnan, Georgia. Please stay in touch and if you are ever back in Georgia please stop and say "Hello". God Bless you all!
John Cook Willy Hardy Detroit 3-29-2005 06:17 PM
I grew up in Youngstown, Ohio, 1 block away from Idora Amusement Park. During the 1960's, The King and his Court came to Idora ballfield every year. I am not sure what year, but after waiting around as a 10, 11, or 12 year old, I hung around long enough to be the bat boy for the King and his court - a memory I will nevewr forget. Over 35 years later, I brough my children to see the King and his Court in Westland, Mi. and showed them what I meant by the the greatest of all time. __________________________________________________________

Dear ED, I had the oportunity of playing an annual game on base and meeting you, for I was on the solfball team. You have excited many all over the world, including me. At the time your son played short/third. By the way I was fortunate to have fouled a pitch! Love the game,played the game but never faced a 100 mph pitch. Just a day ago I was telling my grandson about you. That's the reason for visiting your website today. God bless you. __________________________________________________________

I also toured Europe for ASA in1970. Assisted you with your exhibitions. We saw the chanel 3 news tonight that youn are going to be in Pensacola the 30th of march. Hope to see you there. I am now in a wheel chair, but I wouldn't miss it for anything. I told my son that you might verify some of my old stories.Ha Ha.See you soon,best of luck, Jerry (tiny)Cromer. __________________________________________________________
Debi Milheim Pensacola, FL 3-11-2005 11:25 PM
Dear Mr Feigner, I am so excited about reading in today's paper that you and your court are coming to Pensacola for a fund raiser to help put our community back together after Hurricane Ivan. My Dad took me to one of your games in 1969 (I think) when you played at NAS Oceana in Virginia Beach, VA. I am now 44 years old but i vividly remember that game and you guys were awesome. My Dad was attached to the Tophatters Squadron at the time and he was able to pull some strings for me to be introduced to your team and everyone signed my program. Now that you are coming to Pensacola, I would love to have the opportunity to introduce my 2 sons, 18 and 14, to you and maybe get some autographs for them too. Again thanks for coming to our community to help us out and we look forward to seeing your team play March 30th! Very Sincerely, Debi Milheim __________________________________________________________

Hello to the King and His Court, I would like to thank each and everyone of you all. You all have inspired me in the dream of fastpitch softball. I was privileged enough to see and pitch against "The Cort" in 2001 when i was only 12. It was amazing to see how great you all are at the sport, and the pitching was very amazing. Thank you all for giving me hope for the future. Sincerely, Hannah Dodson
Bobby Allison Lompoc, California 2-24-2005 12:08 PM
I had the privilege of seeing you play while I was stationed in Vietnam in 1972. I was TDY in Thailand and saw you beat up on some local Military Team, they loved to just be able to be on the same field as you. I even got to fly on a C-130 with you as you had another game to play at another base. We had a nice chat about some of your experiences. Quite a thrill for me. Hope if you are ever passing through this area of California I can get out to see the Best Softball team ever. Keep entertaining your many fans. __________________________________________________________
John E. Chambers Inverness, Florida 2-22-2005 08:19 AM
Eddie: I have been your number one fan for past forty years. I have also been a big fan of Preacher Dudley. Both you and Dudley are the two greatest softaball (fast-pitch) masters in the world. You can see photo of Dudley on my web page at: www.martialartsusa.com under the photo gallery. I would like an autographed 8 by 10 photo of the King to place on same web-page. Please tell me what I must do to get this photo for my posting with that of Preacher Dudley? I plan to be at the Inverness Clinic this Saturday, but my ill 96 year old mother can not be left alone. I will try to find someone to sit with her so I can attend your clinic. Thank you John Chambers __________________________________________________________
Grant Poirier Thunder Bay, ON Canada 2-16-2005 05:16 PM
In the very early '70's as a 10 or 11 year old, my Father talked about "The King and his Court" coming to Thunder Bay, which was known as Port Arthur back then, and that he was taking me to see them. Wow, I thought I'm gonna see a "King", thinking of course of some Regal Being with a Crown. When he said the "King" was a fastball pitcher, of extreme capabilities, I still pictured Royalty, with a Crown and when I inquired what a "Court" was, I was still thinking Royalty, who happened to play Fastball, as that is all I was familiar with, as back then up here in the North, Baseball was something rare. Upon going to the actual game I was looking all over for a Guy with a Crown. Now with all this being over 35 years ago, what I actually saw was very unforgetable, but when I saw Half a team take the field against our local All-Stars, who were to me, Icons, I thought they didn't all show up, especially the King as I found no one wearing a Crown. After witnessing one after another of my Local Heroes go down at the plate, all thought of Crowns soon were forgotten, but I did figure out what the "Royalty" part was. King: Thanks for the memories and I really hope you make it back here and I actually get a chance to shake your hand. If that never happens, here's a "High Five" from afar.

Eddie, i pitched numerous times against the king and his court. i guess my biggest trill was when i struck out your first basemen twice that nite. I believe that he had not been struck out in approx. 500 games. Also remember your shortstop named West (can remember his first name. I am retired (70 years young) and play golf at least 3 times a week and try to fish as i live on laylake. best of health to you. Joe Tucker.
Bob Dennis Michigan 1-31-2005 10:14 AM
I am 50 years old and grew up in the New York Metropolitan area. The first time I saw The King and His Court was on the "Mike Douglas Show". I was around 10 years old at the time and was totally amazed at not only how fast Eddie could pitch, but also how fast the catcher must be to catch the ball. Over the years, I watched the group whenever they were on TV which included stints on Wide World of Sports. My favorite memory was when they had a celebrity/All Star softball game on TV and Eddie was incognito and pitched for 2 innings, striking out a bunch of great hitters including Willie Mays. Thanks for so many years of great memories, there will never be another group like the "King and His Court" and there will never be another pitcher like the great Eddie Feigner, Long Live the King.
wayne king Vancouver, BC Canada 1-30-2005 04:47 PM
I've seen the King and His Court many times since the age of five. Every time is a thrill. Our league had the honour to play againt the King at South Memorial Park in Vancouver, BC and what a thrill. They were a man short and one of our guy (Johnny Singh - Vancouver Thunderbirds) suited up along side the King and His Court. What a rush! It was a great game and "Singer" was awesome, diving for balls, throwing guys out, and even jacked one out for a 2-run shot. After the show it was nothing but class as the King stuck around and signed every little kids ball, glove and whatever they had for him to sign. I still have a jersey I bought at the games and had all the guys sign, The King, Hoppe, and yes Johnny Singh! I was a great night for Softball, one never to be forgotten by this "ball nut"! Thanks for all the memories Wayne King, Vancouver T-Birds __________________________________________________________

I remember seeing the King and His Court on the Wide World of Sports 40 years ago, amazing then and I saw Eddie pitch at McClellan AFB in the spring of 1976. His arms were as thick as most guys thighs. Amazing still, a true hero, and one that I wish more people knew about. Hopefully, one day someone from Hollywood will do a big budget movie about this man's life adventures and his decency as he travelled the globe. __________________________________________________________

And we were glad to see you and have dinner with you right after the huge May 3 tornado that smashed the van. I just hope that you play a game somewhere in this area so I can see you one more time. I want a copy of the book and I want you to sign it. Kind regards, Marc McCord __________________________________________________________

I just realized a lifelong dream (have been a fan of the King and His Court since I was 14 and I'm now almost 55) by playing against the King and His Court at War Memorial Stadium, Hampton, VA July 25, 2004. With my engineers' club, the Nautilus Society of Reactor Test Engineers of Northrop Grumman Newport News, and the Peninsula Pilots Baseball Club, we raised over $1200 for Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters in Norfolk, VA. Although Eddie usually runs the whole show, he allowed me to introduce him with my Howard Cosell impression. I then had the pleasure of taking Eddie and Anne Marie to dinner afterward and talked about everything from softball history to military issues. This was quite an experience. __________________________________________________________

Tammy Allen Louisville, Ky 6-27-2004 09:07 AM
When I was a little girl my parents took me and my brothers to see the king and his court play a game. i don't remember how old i was, but i know was old enough that i was playing on a softball team, and young enough that i got very bored if i had to watch someone else play an entire game. so i wasn't real excited about going. however, when we got there and the game started, i sat in total amazement at what i was seeing. i don't think my mouth closed once. i just sat there with my jaw dropped the entire game. my parents did a lot of things with us when we were kids, including disney world, and watching that game is the greatest memory i have. even now, as an adult, i still talk about it. i tell my husband, my kids, and anybody else who will listen, about the greatest ball game i ever saw. so i just wanted to say thank you for the great memory you have given me. i only hope one day i can give my kids a memory like that. __________________________________________________________
John Dumaw Rochester,New York. 6-21-2004 07:58 AM
It was great seeing Eddie and his Court another time. I enjoyed seing Rich Hoppe and everyone else. It was an honor to take the mound aginst you guys. Hadn't played in a game since 1993 but the girls insisted I do it and I am so glad I did. Beleive it or not it made me feel a little bit younger and I'm sure the kids enjoyed evey aspect of the show you all put on. Hope you come back again. __________________________________________________________
George McGarry MS, USA 6-6-2004 08:18 AM
I had the pleasure of playing against you and your team at Keesler AFB back in the late 60's. We actually won the game 3 - 0 and had a pitcher who threw nothing but knuckleballs. If memory serves me, I got lucky for 2 inside the park homeruns. My best buddy had played against you before and warned us about getting picked off at first base by your behind the back throw. And he was the first one to get picked off. I laughed my butt off. You were great!! Remember the game like it was yesterday. God bless you and yours. __________________________________________________________

I have been watching the King since the early 1950's. I can even say I saw him lose a game. On a hot Sunday after noon in New Castle, PA, The team was late to start the game. They were in Youngstown, OH for an early game that went 14 innings to get the win. When they got out of the station wagon they were soaked. Eddie still put on the show and then it was game time. After about the third inning the court started moving in slow motion. The most exciting game had two men on and one out, Mike Meilicke up and he struck out, for the second out. They walked Eddie to get Mike back to the plate. They were playing on a minor league baseball field and Mike sent a line drive that hit the right field wall. It cleared the bases and Mike was rounding third by the time the fielder got to the ball. I hope to see the team in O'Fallon, MO in the summer of 2004. sam :>) __________________________________________________________

I saw the King and His Courtin 1982 in Dhahran Saudi Arabia. The construction camp fielded a team of mostly filipino athletes, who were pretty well convinced of their superior skills before the contest began. They were good athletes, too, but when Eddie and his Court showed them some of the world's best stuff, the players showed increasing levels of awe and appreciation. It was really an amazing performance and demonstration of skill. Eddie's opponents just shook their heads and smiled in astonishment. They all wanted autographs after the game. Thanks for the world tour of world class ambassadorship. __________________________________________________________
Marc McCord Oklahoma City 4-22-2004 02:34 PM
I was with Eddie when he pitched his 10,000th game at Hall of Fame Stadium and I was with him and Ann Marie just after they survived the horrible tornado in Oklahoma City on May 3, 1999. A handful of other times as well. It's a shame that fast pitch is no longer played to the level that it was 30 years ago. Eddie is one of the truly outstanding athletes of all time but there aren't enough people that realize it.

I saw The King and His Court in the 1980's in Hanover, PA. My favorite memory was the King revealing he had caught several of his behind the back pitches in his own glove. The hometown umpire not wanting to say he could not see the ball called it a strike. To this day I consider The King to be on of sports greatest ever. __________________________________________________________

One of my fondest childhood memories was as a 16 year old kid, full of spunk, hotshot baseball player, had a coach who thought he was Hank Aaron, and practically was from what I saw him do. But that day in Fayetteville NC (@1979)where I grew up, I watched the King and his Court demolish a city all star team that could have easily won the softball world series down in Fla that year. Atleast that's how I remember it. I was recounting those memories to my family and co-workers and some remembered the name but I remembered Eddies name from the day I saw him or met him. Lo and behold I do a search and there you are. I took a job up in Yankee country Rochester and there you are coming June 11, my mother's birthday. I'm now 40 and have played a few games in my day and it just really warmed my heart to see you guys are still alive and well. God Bless and hope to see you in June __________________________________________________________

After years and years of hearing about Eddie Feigner's unbelievable pitching I finally got a chance to see The King and His Court perform this past weekend. It was unbelievable how entertaining a fastpitch softball game could be. I felt like a little kid watching this group entertain us. I really wish I could have seen The King pitch back in his prime. I took away some memories of my friends being struck out by Rich Hoppe and can only imagine the King Fanning them. Thanks for the Memories and the Fun. Keep it going as long as you enjoy doing it King!!! Thanks... __________________________________________________________
In the 70's Eddie came to Kirkland Lake and I had the thrill of catching him in the segment of the show where he demonstrated his unique prowess. I played fastball for 22 years and that was my all time highlite. There was only one king in this or any sport. __________________________________________________________

Twentysix years ago, I saw the "King" and purchased one of his t-shirts. Every year I throw away various old clothes, look at Eddie's t-shirt and put it back in the drawer. I cherish the memory and always will. Thank you. __________________________________________________________

Hello Eddie, the last time I saw U guys play was in Huntsville Ala back in the 60's & 70's. I will never forget the great time I had with U and my Dad ,Tony Andreoni, camping out at Little Mountian State park and U pitched the meanest curve ball I have ever tried to catch??? I said try, because it went around the trees and hit me right between the eyes and knocked me for a loop. What a little catcher I was ??? I am going to try to see U guys in Fla this weekend. Its great to C U guys still KICKING SOME BUTT !!! Always the best in my eyes. C U soon Tony Andreoni Jr. __________________________________________________________

I saw The King and His court for the first time when I was a kid. I was fortunate enough to see him again as an adult with the same awe and respect. With the added bonus of my daughter playing on the same field as them. You guys are great. Thank you. __________________________________________________________

I just got my "highlights" tape and handwritten thankyou note. How very special. Thank you. I saw the King and His Court only one time in Birmingham Alabama when I was 5 or 6 years old - that would be in around 1954-5! I was watching Jennie Lynch on TV the other day and told a friend about her - and we both ooed and awed. And I said "but you should've seen this guy Eddie Feigner" - and my friend didn't know who that was. So I told them a little and then looked some stuff up in the Internet to get more detail. I was very surprised to find your website. I figured that the King and His Court was a long-gone relic of yesteryear and that Eddie had retired (or, I'm ashamed to say, I thought even worse). How delightful to see that Eddie is alive and well and that the group is still going. I will definitely come to "the show" if it is ever in Southern California. Best wishes to all. _________________________________________________________
Ken Boardman 3-19-2004 06:22 PM
Dear Mr. Feigner, I met you by chance personally at your "Miller High Life" RV at a filling station in Ramona in approx. 1983 >>perhaps the biggest thrill of my life. You gave me a copy of your Pitching and Hitting book and signed it for me. Three years later while my mom was visiting from Sunnyvale we met you by chance at the Ramona Cafe (I beleive) and you sat and spoke with us at breakfast. We had all watched you on Wide World of Sports in the early sixties and it's easy to remember how much my dad admired you. Dad had played for a local Moose Club team in Uravan,CO.(ghost town now)in the mid 50s. I'm retired from US Navy (and Sony) and live in Poway where I'm helping my 9 year old grand daughter learn THE game >> thank you again for the comprehensive, yet concise book on Pitching and Hitting. I find the ideas presented are valuable not only for ball but also many aspects of life in general. All the best > May God continue to bless you, __________________________________________________________

I have watched the Yankees win world series titles at the stadium,been to spring training in Fla,shook Yogi Berras hand and watched "The Mick" at bat. Despite all these memories, I think my most favorite one is having watched The King here in Poughkeepsie when I was a child. All these years later and I can still here the pop of the glove after a pitch !! Its been more years than I will admit since I saw the King that day, but I still have the "King and his Court" poster I tore off a phone pole that day outside Stitzel Field. Thanx for the memories of that day....... __________________________________________________________

I'm sorry to say I haven't seen you play, not at least through my eyes. However; I have seen you through someone eleses. Tracy who pitched girls fastpitch in Wisc and even won the state championship with her team has told me so much about you. How your arm is massive and the stength you put into the pitch. I feel the passion you have for the game through her words and memory of you and your team. She like you has much love for the game and I was wishing you would of been able to make it to Jupiter so that I could of gone with her to see you. I will hope for September to work out in Ft. Lauderdale. They say girls need female role models and boys need men. But I say anyone as positve and a mentor such as yourself fits what everyone needs as a role model and thats coming from someone who has only heard about you. Thank you for leaving such an image in her mind and heart along with others from her area I have met and heard talk about you.
Latha Bill New Jersy 3-14-2004 06:48 AM
Glad to see your still touring.I played againt you in Beaufort SC in the mid 80's while in the Marines and it has been a lasting memory ever since.I was an above average softball player and thought that that game was an easy win for us,NOT that was the worse game I ever played. It also was the most fun I ever had playing softball in my life. Thank you Eddie for a memory of a lifetime. __________________________________________________________
Charles Mack Norristown, Pa. 3-5-2004 08:24 AM
I am amazed to see that you are still touring. Your team came to Norristown, Pa. and played our team, Norristown Police Department, for a great fundraiser at Roosevelt Field. I went 3-4 against the King, something I will never forget. The fourth hit I tried to stretch into a homerun and was GUNNED out at home plate by the left fielder. I still have the newspaper photo of Eddie, myself and our female pitcher that was published in The Times Herald. I am checking your tour schedule and would love to see you guys in action again. This was truly the most amazing sports team I have ever seen and the memory of playing against them will be with me FOREVER. Eddie and guys, THANKS for the memories and I hope to see you again soon. I'll bring the picture. Thanks.
Jim Gage Västerås, Sweden 2-28-2004 10:12 AM
I saw the King and his court when a kid in Houston, and have never forgotten the experience. Not only did Mr. Feigner perform up to his legendary levels, the outfielder hit home plate with a throw from the fence, and managed to steal the show for a few seconds! Glad to see the King is still around! __________________________________________________________
Beth 2-14-2004 07:52 PM
My father was an amazing softball player in his day. One story my father has always cherished was his chance to play against the King and his Court during this time. He used to have an autographed copy of the program that he kept close when coaching softball at my high school. He thought it was the greatest book to give his pitchers to learn techniques and such. One day a few years back he found this book after having lost track of it for a few years. Unfortunately where he found the book was in a pile of trash he was burning, he saw it go up in flames and was very saddened. After all of this you can imagine my excitement when finding this site just in time for Christmas this year! I emailed the King and his Queen, they happily signed everything I ordered and promised it would be ready in time for Christmas. Unfortunately the names got mixed up. I emailed them back explaining the mix-up, they assured me that they would take care of it and would send another copy out so it would be here in time for Christmas too. And it was! I was so happy when I got to see my father open up this present for Christmas. He was very surprised to se a replica of the book he had once cherished sitting before him again. I am so excited for this site and for the wonderful and PERSONALIZED service I received from these two kind people. Thank you King and Queen! :) Beth __________________________________________________________

I first saw the King and His Court when I was growing up at one of the Haverstraw Little League Fields. I have since played in 2 games against them. Each time I see them play I am still amazed at their performance. Everytime we have a game scheduled to play against the King I always hear people talk about the first time they saw the King play. I hear people of every age speak about the King and it shows how many lives the King and the Court has touched. __________________________________________________________

As a young kid I watched Eddie and the gang on Wide World of Sports and was in awe of his ability. Then back in 1974-75 I got a chance to play against The King and His Court at old Midway Stadium in St Paul MN, an evening game. Our team consisted of four Mn Vikings players (Two Hall of Famers) and various grocery store clerks from the area. My only chance to bat was the last inning with two outs. Eddie threw two called strikes over my shoelaces faster than anything I'd ever seen. Having never played fast-pitch and only taking a dozen practice pitches before the game (and not hitting one) I was unprepared for him to say the least. I decided to swing at the next pitch no matter what came at me. It worked and I smacked a triple into right center field. I couldn't believe I had hit the ball. A Vikings player made the last out. After the game a nine year old boy came up to me and asked for my autograph. I told him that he didn't want mine and pointed toward Eddie, to go get his autograph. He said "you hit the triple" and I signed the program. Thanks Eddie for making the dreams of a skinny little kid come true. Kevin __________________________________________________________

Hi Eddie!!! I had the honor of organizing and playing a game with you back in 2001. It is something that I will never forget and the memories I have only grow sweeter with time. I enjoyed working with you both very much. My Church was in a building project that we hope will eventually become a Youth Center. You heard what we doing and you wanted to help us out. The game we had turned out to be the biggest fundraiser we ever had, by far! All have have done for my Church, Community and myself, means more to me than you will ever know. From the bottom of my heart I say- THANK YOU!!! If people today would only do a fraction of what you do to help others, this world would be a much better place. The world has seen many great athletes, but Eddie,in my opinion, you are the greatest athlete who ever lived. Why do I say that? Because NO ONE has been as dedicated, as durable and as dominate,in any sport, as long as you have. It was a dream come true just to have been a small part of your Legendary History. Thanks Again!!! May God Richly Bless You!!! __________________________________________________________

I have for years had this great memory of seeing The King and His Court play while serving in the Navy, station in Sabana Seca, PR. When I would reminisce with friends and family I would show them the booklet that I purchased back then. That was 1976, now I have a great companion to go with it the video it captures everything that I have tried to explain and more. Viewing the tape took me back in time. I would like to thank you Eddie and Anne Marie Feigner for sharing your memories with me. __________________________________________________________

Thanks for the telephone conversation last night King. God bless the Feigners and all of your family and friends this Thanksgiving week. You have each added so much to the very understated game of softball. I'm sending you my new book, Softball "It Don' Matta" A softball Philosophy. I'm sorry we didn't connect before the book was finished, but all of the fine softball people I interviewed, were keenly aware of the King and His Court. I'm praying for a great future for Kingball, and also for some help and revision of slow-pitch softball. Anything to help adult recreation and avoid so much attention to channel surfing. __________________________________________________________
Scott Lawson Colorado Springs, Colorado 11-21-2003 01:29 PM
To Eddie and Anne Marie Feigner and all "King and His Court" fans: I have just received Eddie's "The King of Softball" video and have already watched the video three times. Not only is the video a masterpiece and a chronology of Eddie's career with his Court, but by using the slow motion prompt on the VCR you can go frame by frame and better appreciate the torque on his right arm and elbow that was required to bring in his Harwood softball at 100+ miles per hour or a changeup at 10 miles per hour! Regarding the changeup, if you are like me, I would have swung five times before the ball even got to the plate. give the video five stars and encourage all fans of fastpitch softball and particularly the King and His Court to go to Eddie's website and purchase this video - you will not regret it.

Dear Eddie: As the sponsor for the game that you played in Elkton let me start of by saying not only was it an pleasure but and absolute privledge to have spent time with guys. The pitching clinic that you did for our girls helped on many different levels. There are alot of life's lessons that can be taught by the game, and it was great to see that someone is still out there doing that. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the team. Jack, Rich and Dave were great guys. I am talking with the fundraiser VP and trying to get another game for the 04 season. Please don't hesitate to call if I can ever help.

My father (George) used to take us to watch the King and His Court play every year in Richland, WA. It was always an amazing time to watch Eddie Feigner with my dad, my uncle John Barlen, Wes Leichty, and Jimmy Jones. Those three used to talk about the times they got to play against Eddie and what a privilege it was to know him. It was always great to walk up to Eddie and shake his hand. Those are memories I will never forget. __________________________________________________________

We remember when you pitched behind your back and you pitched into your own glove and the batter swung at empty air! That was hilarious!

It was a very good and entertaining show. The biggest thing that has happened in our small town of Naples, TX., in a long time. Practically the whole town was there and everyone was smiling. If you have the chance to go see the King, do so before he throws his last pitch."
__________________________________________________________ 13/05/00 MEGAN I like your website. I am looking forward to seeing you play in Wilmington, NC. I am a fast pitcher pitcher myself. I hope to get some pointers when I see you play. __________________________________________________________ 27/05/00 REBECCAH Hi! I just got home from watching you play in Alban, GA.

ALDERSON "I saw the game in Beamsville and I came to the site so I could just let people who haven't seen a game that you should definitely go! Don't miss this, because no one else in the world can play like these four people. I may be only 15, but this is the stuff dreams are made of. You'll never find a dream so easy to realize as this one. It's been less than a week, but I've been inspired, and can throw 3 solid pitches when before I had 1/2 a pitch. Heck, I got just crazy enough to pitch left-handed, and three strikes later I was laughing at myself. hope is someone to aspire to, and don't miss the chance when it'll only be maybe 2 hours of your time. Go!!! But still the man who started it all, Eddie Feigner, is the true driving force behind this team. May hat's off to anyone who does or did play with the King and His Court, keep it up!" __________________________________________________________ 20/06/01 SUSAN R. ALDERSON I would like to take my family to see a show of the King and His court. We live in Kingsport, TN. Please let me know about any shows that will be taking place near our hometown.

Forever a fan.! __________________________________________________________ 05/06/01 MARTY AMBRON "I can still picture the game at Connie Mack Stadium when you pitched against my uncle who played for the Philadelphia D.A.'s office. The Phillies game took second stage for me that day. I was about 8 or 9 then and always heard my dad talk about your pitching and the came he played against you before I was born. He said he couldn't even lay the bat on the ball for a foul against you. we had gone together a few times after that to see your show and I always enjoyed it. My dad still revels in telling stories of watching you play, or playing against you. Thanks for the memories, and I hope to be able to catch a show this year and maybe take my son to watch with me." __________________________________________________________ 02/06/01 JOHN & LAURA ANDERSON We just saw you last night in Cumberland, WS.

Until I realized that all great things must at some time come to an end. I was a fan of his long before I became one of his stats. Yep, I'm one of the many blindfold victims. and proud to be one. I am, however, also one of the very few who got a home run off of the greatest pitcher's ever. I'm happy just to have been a part of the history. Thanks for the memories and the stories I can tell the kids and grand kids. Good luck Eddie, Steve" __________________________________________________________ 21/07/00 KEVIN ANTHONY Two nights ago I saw the King and His Court for the first time.

Jim" __________________________________________________________ 02/07/02 DAVID GIONFRIDDO USA Arlington, VA "Eddie: Saw you in the early 1970s (when I was just a did) at Pat Kidney field, Middletown, CT. I still remember you whiffing a guy while pitching from your knees on second base! An unbelievable feat that major leaguers could not reproduce! Glad you're still whippin' 'em in there and sorry to hear it's your farewell tour. You are a piece of American folklore that can probably never be replaced in this day of video games and chat rooms and the like. Stay well and thanks for the memories!" __________________________________________________________ MICHAEL GLEASON I first saw you pitch back in the 60's on Long Island, NY.

Orrin Graff" __________________________________________________________ 15/05/00 FLORIAN GRASSO "I saw you once in the late 1960's on the Wid World Of Sports and was amazed at what you could do pitching a softball. My three daughters played fastpitch. My youngest is fifteen years old and at twelve was a really good pitcher. When she was thirteen she took a line drive to the head and is still fearful. She can pitch as well as ever but is scared and tries to work only the outside corner. I tried to get her to wear a mask but she won't. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for your time." __________________________________________________________ 01/06/01 ELVIRA M. GRAY Eddie, nice to see you're still on the ""charts"", so to speak. Remember me? J.A.

My dad was a pitcher also. He had an awesome knuckleball. His name was Paul Forsberg, his team nicknamed him Baldy. He had the opportunity to play against you between 1954-1959. He played on a team called Herlich Drugs in Flint, MI. Daddy died 16 years ago and I now have three little girls who play ball. I am trying to get newspaper articles and memorabilia for my girls so that they can see what a great man he was. Would you by any chance have a copy of the stats or any info on his games that you would have played against him? Anything would be appreciated. I wish you only the best. What an inspiration. Steph" __________________________________________________________ 08/09/00 DEAN A. HEAIVILIN "I'm inquiring about the time period when you will be in the Kansas City area on the 2001 tour. I am interested in possibly doing a fundraiser, but I'm new at this and not sure where to start. There's a lot of girls fastpitch here, a little bit of womens, and a little bit of mens. The fundreaser would be for either a summer team or a summer league. The verdict is still out. Facilities are available, but are in question as to where and how to control the gate. If that's even necessary. Thanks for your time. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

My son, who I took to New -Brunswick, NJ., to see Eddie play around 1970, is now taking my grandson. I am a life long fan of fast pitch softball having played in Industrial leagues in the 60's. Eddie told the crowd then that fast pitch is coming to an end and it was true for the men, but I am happy to see that high school and college women are keeping the sport alive. Thanks for the memories Eddie." __________________________________________________________ 07/06/00 BOB HEMMES "I remember seeing you in a game in Staten Island over 40 years ago.
