    How many old photos just like this do you see?
    "Say, look at that bat."
    "Nice grain!"
    "Must be 34 inches?"
    "Maybe 33 ounces, I'd say."
    "Louisville Slugger, think that I've heard of them before."
    "I believe that you use one of these to hit the ball when the pitcher throws it at you."
    "Wonder if they'll make these out of carbon fiber and plastic someday?"
    "Will you finish taking the #$%&ing photos, already!??!?! I'm sick of staring at this bat!!!!"

    Ted Williams, Joe DiMaggio & Muhammed Ali
    The word "Legend" applies in the strongest sense of the word to these three.

    Some contrast, the very young Ted and Jimmie Foxx 1939. Even the young lean Ted was hitting them a mile, a few 450+ foot drives in his first season.

    August 24, 1940. Tigers leading Bosox 11-1, Ted comes in to pitch the 8th inning. He gives up a single but then throws out the runner at second, force out when the next batter bunts. Ninth inning gives up two singles then strikes out Rudy York on three pitches. Earlier York had 2 singles, one double, one HR and 5 RBI's.

    Two innings pitched, one earned run, one walk and one strikeout.

    Ted outside Fenway Park before a game, in street clothes - 1950
    He sorta looks like a young Johnny Cash in this one. Nice scowl!

    Ted Williams - Spring Training - 1950's
    A classic, large shot of Ted. I'd guess it's mid-late 1950's

    Teddy In A Bolo-Tie - Promo Portrait - 1960's
    This is a pretty uncommon picture of Ted. It seems to have been taken as a business promo, not baseball. Maybe for Sears?

    BTW, I used my portable digital camera to digitize this photo, and it's not very good for close shots. My copy is a bit blurry, whereas the original is marvelously sharp. I have an older camera that is much better for close shots, and I will dig that out of a closet and retake the shot if anybody is interested...this is my 2nd favorite baseball photo, next to the one by my user id.

    Anytime you can get a better, sharper shot, I vote aye.

    I think that this one is a little better.
    Note the little tiny shinguard!

    I'm outta here. Bye, y'all.

Ted's was, I guess, most often with the hometown press, whereas Sinatra's was with the national press.

    These are just fantastic photographs.
