    I saw Williams play at Fenway on July 20, 1958. It was quite a memorable day - Jim Bunning pitched a no-hitter in the first game of a doubleheader. The only recollection I have of Williams was from the second game as a pinch hitter (long fly to right I believe) although he did play the first game. Hard to believe but the cost for bus fare and seat for the 2 games was $10. LOL

    I'll never forget a game, in '56 or '57, against the Indians. Ray Narleski was making a rare start, and in the first inning had Ted down 0-2. Instead of wasting one, he tried to get Ted on three pitches. It had to be over the plate, because Ted never would have swung at ball one. At any rate, Williams deposited the ball in the right field stands. To this day, that's my greatest baseball thrill, seeing Ted Williams hit a home run.

    I was 12 years old sitting in the right field grandstand on sept.28, 1960 when Teddy Ballgame hit his last home run. from where me and my dad were sitting it appeared that it was a hugh pop up that went up at a 45 degree angle, cept it just never came down until it landed in the crowd behind the bullpen. he ran the bases, and never stopped to even tip his cap to the crowd. I never forgot that.

     I'm from Boston, I saw Williams play, but I also thought that Joe Dimaggio was a better hitter because he always seemed to kill us with clutch hits. That said I gotta admit that Williams lost a couple of prime years to the Korean War, so his stats would most likely even have been better. I have to add that until this recent era I always thought that the wrong team got kicked out of Boston. I used to go to Braves games for a Wheaties Box Top and a quarter. My, how things have changed! What was the refrain? Spahn and Sain and pray for rain!

    Williams lost more than "a couple of prime years"...
