Ted Williams, 1918-2002
Legendary Red Sox Hall of Famer Ted Williams, the last baseball player to hit above .400, has died. Share your thoughts about The Kid.
I saw him play. I watched him fish. Everything he did he did with passion and perfection. I have his home address sitting on my desk. I was going to send him a get well note but never did. Boy, am I ever going to miss this guy. Go Sox, win it for The Kid!

Today we lost not just the greatest hitter of all time, but one of the pillars on which Red Sox Baseball stands. Without Ted, the Yawkeys, Dom, Yaz and all of our cherished heroes, summer in New England would not be the same. We'll miss ya, Ted.

One of the beautiful things about baseball is that Ted Williams will live forever. He is the best of the best -- a man with a great gift that shared it with everyone, as much an artist in his chosen medium as Shakespeare or da Vinci. Rest in peace.
SEMPER FI TO THE GREATEST HITTER OF ALL TIME. AND ALSO A TRUE WAR HERO WITH A SET OF BRASS BALLS. RAISE YOUR GLASS TODAY TO A TRUE AMERICAN HERO!!!!!
I hope you hit as well in heaven as you did in real life. Oh and tell Babe to get rid of the curse!
I'll always remember seeing Ted in his final appearance at Yankee Stadium when I was a kid!!! He was always one of my baseball idols and sure enough. he hit a homer that day and received a big hand from the dreaded Yankee fans!!!!

i first heard about ted williams one weekend when i was picking up relatives at logan. someone said, 'let's take the ted home', and i was like, what's the ted? and my aunt told me that he was a great basketball player, and my uncle said, he played for the red sox, you dumb broad, and i thought wow, he must have been a great football player to have a tunnel named after him. anyway, i'm real sad now, but i guess since the pats won this year he must be happy - he was a great coach and all.
