Ted Williams, Greatest Hitter in his Baseball Art Exhibit

 


Ted Williams, wearing the famous uniform with the number 9, was the last major leaguer to hit .400 in a season. This Boston Red Sox player wanted to be known greatest hitter of all time, and is remembered for a powerful left-handed swing.  He hit .344 lifetime with 521 home runs, and was a two-time MVP who twice won the Triple Crown. His crowning glory and greatest achievement in 1941 was when he batted .406, getting six hits in a doubleheader on the final day of the season. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1966.


Williams had 145 RBI as a Red Sox rookie in 1939 and closed out his career by hitting a home run at Fenway Park in his final major league at-bat in 1960. Williams was a perfectionist who had no tolerance for those less dedicated. He was single-minded and stubborn, a player who reduced the game to its simplest elements: batter vs. pitcher. Tall and thin, he would often be involved in feuds. Theodore Samuel Williams (The Kid, The Thumper, The Splendid Splinter, or Teddy Ballgame) was 6' 3" and weighed 205 lbs.


He debuted on April 20, 1939 and played his final game on September 28, 1960.
