Before the 1955 season, Jack Feller was signed as an amateur free agent by the Detroit Tigers. He was assigned to the Panama City Fliers where the 19-year-old catcher appeared in 115 games and hit for a .329 average his first year in the pros. In 1956 he appeared with two teams, hitting .235 for the class D Hazlehurst-Baxley Tigers in 42 games and appearing with the class B Terre Haute Tigers for another 42 games, this time hitting for a .246 average.
Jack was with the class B Durham Bulls in 1957, appearing in 95 games and he managed 81 base hits for a .264 average. In 1958, he played well for the class A Augusta Tigers, hitting for a .261 average for the Southern Association champions. He got a late-season look by the parent club Detroit Tigers. On August 21st, Feller appeared in his only major league contest, with no record at bat and one putout in the field; he caught one half inning with future Hall of Famer Jim Bunning on the mound. That would be it for Jack in the majors.
He split 1959 between the class B Fox Cities Foxes (where hit .267 in 54 appearances) and the class A Knoxville Smokies where he fell off to .147 in 26 games. He had been a receiver in the Detroit Tigers minor league system for five seasons before leaving baseball to pursue his degree in physical education at Adrian College in Michigan.
