Happy Birthday, Ted Williams!

Updated: Sep 26, 2018

Folks, there's a new documentary out about “the Splendid Splinter” and his birthday is today. If you're a baseball fan and feel like celebrating, I've got an idea.

Countless players, including Hall of Famer Wade Boggs, were influenced by Williams's treatise on "the most difficult thing to do in sport." You can watch new interviews with some of them and see never-before-seen footage in the film, but if you want to hear the gospel in his own words, we've pulled our signed copy of "The Science of Hitting" off the shelf in time for Williams's birthday.

Williams didn’t sign many of his books, so this inscribed copy of The Science of Hitting a rarity.

In fact, it’s the only one we’ve ever seen.
