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

Ted Williams played his entire 19-year Major League
career as a left fielder for the Boston Red S
from 1939 to 1960, only interrupted by service time
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-
All-Star, a two-time recipient of the American
 Most Valuable Player Award, a six-time AL
batting champion, and a two-time Triple Crown

Ted Williams finished his playing career with a .344
batting average, 521 home runs, and a .482 on-base
, 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
Hall of Fame
in 1966. He died of cardiac arrest at the age
of 83 on July 5, 2002.
