The Splendid Splinter, Teddy Ballgame, The Kid-no matter the nickname, Ted Williams was one of the most accomplished hitters in baseball history. He was the last man to hit .400 in a single season, a 19 time All-Star, two-time MVP and Triple Crown award winner, and was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966 . . . all while serving his country in World War II and the Korean War. Far from a conventional biography, Facing Ted Williams aims to offer a different perspective-to tell a different story. See Ted Williams through the eyes of pitchers struggling to put a fastball past his bat, from infielders and outfielders, as they adjust their positions in the hopes that they can fill the hole where a frozen rope might otherwise land, squat behind the plate with catchers as they strategize a Williams at-bat, pitch-by-pitch, as well as testimonials from teammates and opponents alike on how Williams was regarded among his peers. Facing Ted Williams provides riveting insights from many baseball legends, including: Don Larsen Bob Feller Roy Sievers Bobby Richardson Mudcat Grant Bob Friend And many more! Whether you're a Red Sox fanatic, a casual baseball fan, or perhaps just an admirer of the fabled war hero and slugger, this book is sure to be a fresh and compelling look at this classic baseball icon. Much like Williams himself, Facing Ted Williams is sure to be a homerun for all walks of baseball fandom, so don't swing and miss!
