"All I want out of life is that when I walk down the street folks will say, 'There goes the greatest hitter that ever lived." - Ted Williams
Ted Williams lifetime batting average was .344. Let me repeat that. .344!!! He was a 19x All-Star, 2x AL MVP, 2x Triple Crown winner, 6x AL batting champion and his .482 career on base percentage is the highest of all time! And oh by the way, he hit .406 during the 1941 season!!!
"Ted looked at me and said, 'If I knew that hitting .400 would have been so damn important, I would have done it more often.''' - Tony Gwynn
He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966.
