Rare Photos of Ted Williams

Ted Williams, "The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived," was born on Aug. 30, 1918. A two-time MVP who twice won the Triple Crown, Williams hit .344 lifetime with 521 home runs — despite twice interrupting his career to serve as a Navy and Marine Corps pilot in World War II and the Korean War. Baseball's last .400 hitter, Ted Williams was always colorful and almost always controversial during the 22 years he played big league baseball.
