What a truely sad day. The last great American hero has passed away. Ted Williams died this morning at the age of 83. He was truely the greatest hitter to ever play the game. I don’t think I need to mention my favoritism towards the Red Sox and especially heros of days gone by. John Wayne once said that he spent his entire film career trying to be like Ted. I think that speaks proudly of his character. A true sportsman, a legend, a Boston icon. He will truely be missed by all who so proudly call themselves fans of the greatest game in the world.
