Ron Kubicki, one of Bob�s coaches, placed his talent in perspective when he said, “When you build a team, your most important position is leadoff. There was nobody more feared in his era as a leadoff hitter than Bob McClelland.” Mc Clelland’s talents paid off when he was selected to numerous tournament All – Star teams throughout his career.
