Mental Hitting Book Reference

Ted Williams ability to "read" the baseball and investigate every phase of the game to his advantage was his "Science of Hitting". He did the same when he flew the jet in the Korean War. During a September game at Fenway Park, the opposing pitcher a "Rookie" entered the game to pitch to Williams. Ted went to his dugout and ask "does anyone know this pitcher"?

No one did.

Ted batted and "struck out". The Rookie sent the game ball to the Red Sox locker room. "Have Ted sign this ball"!.

Two weeks later the same pitcher is pitching and Ted is batting. Ted hits a HR in the 2nd DECK and he is "galloping" [running ]around the bases, he yells at the pitcher "kid go get that ** ball and I will sign it"!

True Story;

Bob
