Ted Williams went out on top of the game of baseball in 1941, hitting a home run in what would be the last at-bat of his career. The Kid finished his career with a .344 batting average, 1,798 runs, 521 homers, 2,019 walks and a slugging average of .364.
Friday, Aug. 30 would have been Williams’ 95th birthday, and we want to take you back to 1991 for this week’s Throwback Thursday. The Red Sox celebrated the 50th anniversary of Williams batting .406 at Fenway Park in ’91, and The Greatest Hitter of All Time talked with Ned Martin before the game about his historic mark, Roger Clemens and what he thinks of today’s modern hitters.
Hear what Williams had to say in the above video.
