    VAN METER, Iowa (AP) - The Bob Feller Museum is scheduled to reopen on April 5, but financial troubles are threatening its survival in his central Iowa hometown of Van Meter.

    The lack of money forced museum board members to close it on Jan. 3. It opened in 1995 to honor the Hall of Fame pitcher but has faltered since his death on Dec. 15, 2010.

    Museum board member Bob DiBiasio told The Des Moines Register that Feller "was the engine that powered that museum."

    The museum is working with the city of Van Meter and the Cleveland Indians to develop options.
