Product description

From Amazon

The fun of this celebration of one of baseball's greatest hitters is not in the expected encomiums from a clubhouse of fellow ballplayers, the many nostalgic photographs, or even the bits of Williams collectibles it displays. It's in the tribute's surprises, and there are many: Shoeless Joe author W. P. Kinsella's fictional reportage of an imagined encounter between Williams and Jackson; senator John Glenn's recollection of flying fighter missions with Williams in Korea; basketball coach Bobby Knight's account of a plane ride with Williams for a fishing trip in Russia; and the tribute's valedictory, Boston Globe columnist Mike Barnicle's emotional panegyric to the 50th anniversary of the season Williams hit .406. Whether Teddy Ballgame is the greatest hitter who ever lived is certainly debatable; that he is unquestionably one of the most appreciated and studied is evident on every page of this splendid homage.
