1966: Ted Williams elected to The Hall of Fame

The great Ted Williams was selected to the Hall of Fame on this day in 1966.   

He was probably the greatest hitter in history.  His numbers must take into consideration military service in World War II and Korea:  .344 career batting average, a .482 On Base Average, 2,654 hits, 2,021 walks, 521 HR and 1,839 RBI.   


Williams hit .406 in 1941, the last hitter to do so, and flirted again in 1957 with .388!


Williams was a bit temperamental with fans and the media.   However, there was not a better hitter once the game started.
