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.

BIG PRICE TAG ON A PAIR OF DENIM PANTS


PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — A buyer with a penchant for vintage denim has
plunked down nearly $100,000 for a pair of truly vintage jeans that come
from the American Old West.

The 125-year-old Levi Strauss & Co. blue jeans, which failed to sell at
auction in 2016, now have a new owner somewhere in Southeast Asia.

The price puts it near record territory for old Levi’s. But the private sale
agreement prevents the disclosure of the exact price or the buyer’s
location. The buyer sent a representative to Maine to inspect the jeans
before buying them on May 15.
