This is kind of cool. Right before the Spring Training opener the team did this:
The Indians had Feller's No. 19 stenciled along the first-base line and on the mound. Following a video tribute, the team unfurled a large banner that read: "19 Always In Our Hearts."

The tribute keep coming:
Among the tributes on opening day:
1. During the pre-game ceremonies, all Indians players will wear Feller's #19 jersey.
2. A video tribute will be shown.
3. There will be a special banner presentation.
4. Feller's widow, Anne, will present a "silent" ceremonial first pitch
5. The back of the mound will be decorated with Feller's jersey number, retired by the club in 1957.
1. Cleveland's uniforms will be adorned this season with a special patch with a likeness of Feller in his famous high-kick windup.
2. On July 4 against the New York Yankees, fans will receive a replica bronze statue of Feller like the one that sits permanently outside the ballpark.
3. Inside the park, there will be murals displayed in Heritage Park and the upper deck in honor of Feller.
4. The press-box seat that Feller occupied during recent years to watch the Indians will become a permanent memorial.
Give it to the Indians, they are going all out!
