Sept-28, 1960: Ted Williams Last At Bat

Ted Williams Last At Bat

On this day 55 years ago, Ted Williams got up for his final at bat in Fenway Park.  It was his 7,706 time at bat in his 19-year career (which was interrupted for 5 years by service in World War II and Korea).  The result was classic Ted Williams.

It was not only his 2,654 hit but also his 521 home run.

Unfortunately, his Red Sox would finish next to last, with a record of 65-89 (32 games behind the hated New York Yankees).
