Ted Williams, 1940: "If I Were a Free Agent, I'd Sign With The Dodgers"

From the August 20, 1940 edition of theDubuque (Iowa) Telegraph-Herald

  1. I could have lived an entire lifetime, perfectly happy without knowing this. You just ruined Ted Williams!

  2. I highly recommend the biography "Ted Williams" by Leigh Montville. He was a complicated character, to say the least - one of the least-liked superstars in baseball history. He had notoriously bad relationships with certain sports writers, too. Add to that a gift for saying the wrong thing at the wrong time and the man was a PR nightmare.

    There's plenty of good in the book, too. In fact, that's why I like it. He is presented as a genuinely multi-dimensional man.


Why, hello there!
