Sir Alexander Fleming  (August 6, 1881 – March 11, 1955)

Sir Alexander Fleming (above) was a young bacteriologist when
an accidental discovery led to one of the great developments
of modern medicine on September 28, 1928. Having left a plate
of staphylococcus bacteria uncovered, Fleming noticed that
a mold that had fallen on the culture had killed many of the
bacteria. He identified the mold as penicillium notatum,
similar to the kind found on bread.

In 1929, Fleming introduced his mold by-product called
penicillin to cure bacterial infections.

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

On September 28, 1941, the last day of the regular season, the
Boston Red Sox’s Ted Williams got six hits in eight at-bats
during a doubleheader in Philadelphia, boosting his average
to .406. He becomes the first player since 1930 to hit .400.
“I guess I’ll be satisfied with that thrill out there today,” he
tells the Boston Globe about hitting .400. “… I never wanted
anything harder in my life.”

In addition to his .406 batting average—no major league player
since Williams has hit .400—the left fielder led the big leagues
with 37 homers, 135 runs and a slugging average of .735.

Williams, nicknamed “The Splendid Splinter” and “The Thumper,
” began his big-league career with the Red Sox in 1939.
