    What's up Jete!  Thanks for posting that article…outstanding.  I was at that game but didn't get to see it with quite the clarity as those pics.  

    Thanks and enjoy the break!

    Thanks for posting this, Jete.  

    Like Soups, I was there, and 15 years later I recognize it as the defining moment in my life as a baseball and Red Sox fan.  Even now as I type this and think about that night and Ted Williams coming onto the field in the golf cart I get a lump the size of a bowling ball in my throat and my eyes well up and spill over - as they did that night.  

    Life don't get any better than that!

    Well said S5, well said.  I don't think I realized just how powerful that night was until years later.  When Tony Gwynn passed, I was reminded of that moment he had with Williams.  That brought back the bowling ball in my throat, too.

    That is one of my all time favorite moments from the Sox. I didn't get to be there like you two lucky devils, but I watched it all happen. The way every single all star was trying to get close to him to shake his hand was incredible. I remember that moment between he and Gwynn also...he was making some kinds of gestures that had to do with hitting. To be a fly on that golf cart...listening in on Ted Williams and Tony Gwynn talk hitting. It'd be hard to think of two better pure hitters than those two men.

    Also during the home run contest, some ESPN jamoke was trying to interview him when someone was hitting...possibly even McGuire. Williams kept getting distracted by the HRs and wasn't even really paying attention to the guy. He was a fan, and it was awesome to see him like that.

    I remember the all-stars encircling Teddy by the mound and Teddy asking McGuire if he smelled smoke when he fouled off a fastball.

    The PA announcer had to ask the players to return to their dugouts to start the game. I believe many of them would have rather  spent the 3 hours listening to Ted talk baseball. Most of us aren't bigger than life, the Splendid Splinter definitely was. 

    Btw, if Ted was ever a poster on this board, most of his posts would be removed.

    I too was at that game. when my childhood hero came out in that cart I could barely contain myself. to me he didn't look any different than when he played left field when I was about 12 or so. the way those all stars were in total awe of Ted just about had me in tears. the only bummer was the fact that his jerk son put that hitters.net white cap on his head instead of his blue red sox one. yup! the greatest left handed hitter in my lifetime. I still have my home game shirt in my closet with #9 on the back.

    thanks jetes for the excellent post my friend.
