Ted Williams, pictured here after he was called up from San Diego, March 18, 1938, drove in 145 runs as a 21-year-old rookie in 1939, a record that still stands today. The legendary right fielder set two other rookie records as well in '39 when he walked 107 times, and slugged .609 to go along with a .327 ave. and 31 home runs. The Splendid Splinter also set Red Sox rookie records for extra-base hits with 86 and runs scored with 131. How did things go from there for the rookie right fielder? Williams himself put it best when he had the foresight to say, "All I want out of life is that when I walk down the street, folks will say, 'There goes the greatest hitter who ever lived.'"
