QUOTED: TED WILLIAMS

Q

On this day — July 5 — Ted Williams died from cardiac arrest at the age of 83. Today we we celebrate the life and career of the man many considered the greatest hitter in the history of the game.

Williams said:

A man has to have goals — for a day, for a lifetime — and that was mine, to have people say, “There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever lived.”

That is a statement that is difficult to deny. Williams holds the all-time record for highest on-base percentage (.482). He compiled a lifetime .344 batting average and won the MVP award (1946 and 1949) and Triple Crown twice (1942 and 1947) and six batting titles. He is the last hitter to bat over .400 in a season (batting .406 in 1941).
