Two-time winner of the Triple Crown, Williams hit an astonishing.406 in his 1941 season, a record that stands to this day. During his last ballpark appearance at the 1999 All-Star game, 80-year-old Teddy Ballgame achieved his childhood dream. In Ted Williams , discover how this Red Sox slugger was not only a superb ballplayer, but also a world-class fisherman and a fighter pilot in World War II and the Korean War.
