TED WILLIAMS

Game 66 | January 30, 1958 | Ted Williams, Joe Cronin, Mike Higgins
For Williams, one of the greatest players in baseball history, it was a return to the city where he won the American Association Triple Crown with the Millers in 1939 when he hit.336 with 43 home runs and 142 RBIs. Cronin, a Hall of Fame infielder; was the Red Sox general manager in 1957, and "Pinky" Higgins was the manager.



Game 208 | May 26, 1972 | Ted Williams, Bob Short
For Williams it was his first Dunkers appearance since 1958. Short, the Minneapolis business entrepreneur who had enticed Williams from retirement to manage his Washington Senators, had just moved that team to Texas. Williams kept his commitment to Short to stay with the team during the controversial move. The team finished the season in 6th place with a record of 54-100, and Williams' managerial career was over.
