“There is no question that some strikes are called balls, and some balls are called strikes,
but you’re far better off forgetting the calls that hurt you and concentrating on that next pitch, or that next turn at bat.” & Ted Williams, 1918 – 2002, American professional baseball player and manager.
U.S. Economy Hits Sweet Spot
Nicknamed ‘The Kid’, ‘Teddy Ballgame’ and ‘The Splendid Splinter’, baseball legend Ted Williams is arguably one of the greatest players of all time. The San Diego-born Williams played his entire career as a left fielder for the Boston Red Sox where he captured baseball’s prestigious Triple Crown – the home run, runs batted in (RBI) and batting average titles – not once, but twice. In a sport where simply getting a hit three out of ten times is considered elite, Hall of Famer Williams was the last player in Major League Baseball to post the magic .400 batting average in a full season, achieving the feat in 1941 with a .406 average.
