Doc’s Sports Today and in the Day

“The Enigmatic Hispanic?” – Ted Williams” on ESPN Sports Radio 1340 AM, 7:55 AM, April 14 – April 18, 2014

Ted Williams

The greatest hitter who ever lived according to many baseball historians, Ted Williams set the standard for excellence at the plate. Williams was a complex individual who rarely spoke of his Mexican ancestry believing ethnic prejudice might hinder his chances in the major leagues.   He did however, in his 1966 Hall of Fame Speech, speak out on behalf of Negro League ball-players who had been excluded from the the Baseball Hall of Fame at Cooperstown.
