Beschreibung

Ted
Williams is perhaps the most fascinating, the most controversial - yes, and
possibly the greatest - figure in American sports history.  Only Babe Ruth, Muhammad Ali, and Michael
Jordan stand on a pedestal with him.

It
is sad that millions of young people know only what they have read of his
death.  This book is not about his
death.  It is about his life.

Ted
Williams was an enigma, who just wouldn't fit into a mold.  The Boston press once took a poll to name the least cooperative,
most temperamental, most generous, and most cooperative players on the Red
Sox.  Williams came in first in every
category.

I
knew Ted Williams for 45 years, beginning in 1957, and saw him play for 20,
beginning in 1941.  This has given me a
unique box seat to this amazing chapter of Americana.  To me he is
the Beethoven and Monet of baseball.

But
why another Ted Williams book?

Ted
is already the subject of a large and growing hagiography of excellent and
readable books.  His own My Turn At
Bat is one of the most engaging autobiographies in sports literature.  I made a modest contribution in 1991 with The
Last 400 Hitter, about his magnificent season of 1941.

Each
biography draws on different sources. 
They are like the blind men who clutch different parts of an
elephant.  Each adds to the mosaic, as
each gropes to discover this ebullient yet elusive and enigmatic man.

In
the present work I have tapped hitherto untapped sources in hopes of presenting
the most complete story yet assembled of an amazing Renaissance man.  Based on half a century of research, I have
examined this many-sided genius from as many new angles as possible, hoping to
paint the Cromwellian portrait that he himself would
have wanted, warts and all.

Ted
and I spent hours probing his memory for games and players now largely lost to
living memory.

Beginning
20 years ago I also probed the memories of dozens of men, many now gone, who
played with and against
