Editorial Reviews

Ann Ligouri - celebrated sports journalist, and radio show host - brings you this richly produced interview with the Hall of Fame inducted baseball player Ted Williams. He is widely known for his 21 exceptional seasons with the Boston Red Sox which led to 17 All-Star MVP awards and much more. Listen to this intimate interview that recounts those years, achievements, and relationships with other players. But Ted Williams led an extraordinary life off the baseball diamond, too. Hear tales of military service as a pilot for the US Marine Corps, the times he flew alongside astronaut John Glen, and the relationship he has with his son.

Publisher's Summary

Ted Williams defined excellence in whatever he took on. Whether he was playing left field in the major leagues, or flying an airplane, Williams would not settle for second-best. He played 21 seasons with the Boston Red Sox in a career interrupted two times by service as a Marine Corps pilot. He is widely considered one of the greatest hitters in baseball, was a two-time American League MVP, and was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.

In 1941, he batted over .400 in a single season and no one has touched the record since. Ironically, Williams attributes the secret of his success to 'pure luck.'

Here, Williams is interviewed in Boston during All-Star Week by Ann Liguori, award-winning luminary in sports broadcasting with a celebrated career that spans two decades. Liguori has interviewed some of the most legendary sports personalities, drawing out their success stories, their opinions on a variety of issues, and their love of the game.
