While it’s officially unknown if Red Sox manager Joe Cronin actually asked Williams if he wanted to simply take the final day doubleheader off, Williams nonetheless played both games.

He went 6-8 over the two games, emphatically adding his name to the list of players who crossed the .4000 threshold over an entire season. After his impressive display, Williams’s average rose to .406, and he remains the last player to ever achieve such a standard.

Daily highlight: Jackie Bradley Jr. closed out the 2020 season with yet another highlight catch.
