  • Ted Williams was the last man to hit .400, when he batted .406 in 1941.

  • He won the Triple Crown in 1947.

  • He wasn't named AL MVP in either season. Spiteful Boston writers left him off their ballots entirely, delivering the MVP award to Joe DiMaggio both years.

  • In 1946 and 1949, sportswriters were unable to deny him the MVP.

  • 521 home runs as a lefthanded hitter in Fenway, despite a career that was twice interrupted by military service.

  • 17 time All-Star.

  • .344 lifetime batting average seventh all-time.

  • All-time leader with a .482 career on-base percentage.

  • Won six batting titles, including at age 23 and 40.

  • Led the AL in HRs and RBI four times each.

  • Led the AL in runs scored six times and walks eight times.

  • Led the league in slugging percentage nine times and on-base percentage 12 times.

  • In his final season, 1960, he hit a dramatic home run in Fenway Park in his final at-bat. It was his 29th of the season, a record for players at least 40 years old.

  • In his Hall of Fame acceptance speech he lobbied for the inclusion of Negro League players in Cooperstown.

  • He was later inducted into the Sportsman’s Fishing Hall of Fame – known as one of the best fly fisherman in American history.

"A man has to have goals - for a day, for a lifetime
- and that was mine, to have people say,
'There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever lived.'"
