“I would love to walk down the street one day with people passing me, stating….there goes the greatest hitter the game has ever seen” Such was the dream of a young Ted Williams as he pursued his place in baseball history with a steadfast persistence. Ted’s dream DID become a reality for most baseball experts agree that Ted Williams is the greatest hitter who ever lived. His .344 lifetime average, 521 home runs, and being the last player to hit .400 in that magical 1941 season all attest to this legacy. The “Splendid Splinter” as he was commonly called, not only handled the bat better than anyone who ever stepped into a batter’s box, but served two stints as a fighter pilot in World War II and the Korean War.
