Major League Baseball's last .400 hitter, Ted Williams is regarded as one of the sport's greatest. He also had many nicknames, including "Teddy Ballgame" (also the name of his biography) and "The Greatest Hitter who Ever Lived". Williams played his entire 21-year major league career with the Boston Red Sox, only stepping off the field when duty called and he enlisted in the military, where he served in the Second World War and the Korean War. From the moment Williams stepped on the field, he excelled and proved his worth as one of the games best hitters. Although he never won a World Series and only participated in one World Series (thanks to the Curse of the Bambino, some argue), his individual accolades are extensive. Williams career statistics are phenomenal, with a batting average of .344, 2654 hits, 521 home runs, 1839 RBIs, and an on-base-percentage of .482. He was a 19x All-Star, 2x American League MVP (1946, 1949), 6x AL Batting Champion (1941, 1942, 1947, 1948, 1957, 1958), 4x AL Home Run Leader (1941, 1942, 1947, 1949), 4x AL RBI Leader (1939, 1942, 1947, 1949), and was named to the MLB All-Century Team and MLB All-Time Team. He also holds the MLB record for career on-base-percentage with a .482 OBP. To cap off this outstanding career, Williams was inducted into the Major League Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966 - his first year of eligibility - following his retirement in 1960.
