Ted Williams

It has now been 75-years since that magical 1941 season when Ted Williams finished with a .406 batting average becoming perhaps the last man in history to ever reach .400 for a season. It should be recalled that Williams didn't even win the MVP that season with voters instead preferring Joe DiMaggio and his 56-game hitting streak.

  1. And the next year T. Williams won the triple crown, as well as leading the AL in runs, walks & slugging, but Yankee Joe Gordon won MVP. It should be noted, however, the NY 2nd baseman did lead the league in an offensive category: 95 K's.
