Ted Williams

This month, we’ll speak about  Hall of Fame baseball player Ted Williams – considered by baseball scholars to be one of the, if not  greatest, hitter of the twentieth century.  Williams, a California native born and raised in San Diego, played his entire 19-year career with the Boston Red Sox and retired in 1960.  He was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966.   A complex, controversial, multi-talented and enigmatic individual, it was little known during his career that Williams mother was Mexican.  Williams consciously hid his Mexican heritage, fearing that prejudice would hinder his chances playing in the major leagues – a fascinating story that has great cultural significance today in the United States with its changing demographic.
