Ted Williams 95


The best hitter ever to play the game of baseball was born ninety-five years ago on August 30, 1918. Theodore Samuel Williams played for the Boston Red Sox for 19 seasons, but during the prime of his career, he served as a navy pilot in World War Two and the Korean War.  Leigh Montville’s “Ted Williams: Biography Of An American Hero” brings to life this American legend. Also we just added Robert Weintraub’s “The Victory Season”, which looks at the end of war and players like Ted Williams coming back to the game.
