CLEVELAND (AP) - Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Feller is improving after being hospitalized with pneumonia.

Feller was admitted to the Cleveland Clinic last week, Indians vice president Bob DiBiasio said Monday. The 92-year-old Feller has regained some strength and is doing better, DiBiasio said. He did not know when Feller could be released.

Feller has had some serious medical issues in recent months. He was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia in August and underwent surgery to implant a pacemaker in October.

Enshrined in Cooperstown in 1962, Feller won 266 games in an 18-year career _ all with Cleveland _ that was interrupted by him serving during World War II.
