It was on this day in 1993.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT), the official United States policy on gays serving
in the military was announced by President Bill Clinton (below). It allowed
closeted members of the military to serve, while prohibiting those in the
military who were openly gay to serve. Prior to “don’t ask, don’t tell,” there
had been an outright ban on gays in the military.

Theodore Williams (Theodore Samuel Williams)
(August 30, 1918 – July 5, 2002)

Ted Williams played his entire 19-year Major League
Baseball
career as a left fielder for the Boston Red S
ox
from 1939 to 1960, only interrupted by service time
during
World War II and the Korean War. Nicknamed
"The Kid", Williams is regarded as one of the greatest
players in baseball history, despite being a below
average defensive left fielder. Williams was a nineteen-
time
All-Star, a two-time recipient of the American
League
 Most Valuable Player Award, a six-time AL
batting champion, and a two-time Triple Crown
winner.

Ted Williams finished his playing career with a .344
batting average, 521 home runs, and a .482 on-base
percentage
, the highest of all time. His career batting
average is the highest of any MLB player whose career
was played primarily in the
live-ball era, and ranks tied
for 7th all-time (with
Billy Hamilton). Williams retired
from playing in 1960 and was inducted into the
Baseball
Hall of Fame
in 1966. He died of cardiac arrest at the age
of 83 on July 5, 2002.
