The Career of Ted Williams:
Theodore Samuel “Ted” Williams played his entire 19-year Major League Baseball (MLB) career as a left fielder for the Boston Red Sox from 1939–1942 and 1946–1960. Nicknamed “The Kid”, “The Splendid Splinter”, “Teddy Ballgame”, “The Thumper” and “The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived”, Williams is regarded as one of the greatest hitters in baseball history.
In 1941, Williams posted a .406 batting average, making him the last MLB player to bat over .400 in a season.
Williams was a seventeen-time All-Star, a two-time recipient of the American League (AL) Most Valuable Player Award, a six-time AL batting champion, and a two-time Triple Crown winner. He finished his playing career with a .344 batting average, 521 home runs, and a .482 on-base percentage, the highest of all time.
Williams retired from playing in 1960 and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966, in his first year of eligibility. He was selected for the Major League Baseball All-Time Team in 1997 and the Major League Baseball All-Century Team in 1999.
