TED WILLIAMS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Ted Williams Hits His Final Home Run

When a lanky native of San Diego hit a home run on September 28, 1960, it was not, perhaps, the most significant happening in his career—and certainly not the most significant happening in world affairs during the ninth month of the 60th year of the 20th century.

David Ortiz doesn't believe story of Ted Williams' record HR

By Zack Cox Every Boston Red Sox fan knows what the red seat signifies. It’s one of the tenets of Fenway Park lore, right up there with Carlton Fisk’s walk-off home run in the 1975 World Series.

Boudreau Gets Crafty vs. Ted Williams

On July 14, 1946, Ted Williams was tearing the cover off the ball against the Indians. In the first half of a doubleheader at Fenway Park, Williams knocked in eight runs, and the Red Sox needed every one of them in an 11-10 win over the Tribe. In the second game, Indians player-manager Lou Boudreau had an idea. Left fielder George Case was left in his position, while Boudreau and...
