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.More
