Teddy Ballgame & the Black Babe Ruth

ok, again why Ted Williams was a god among men, so to speak…

As Jim Bouton recounts in “Ball Four,” when Ted Williams took batting practice, he would yell out, “My name is Ted fucking Williams and I’m the greatest hitter in baseball.” -Bill Simmons

yeah, Teddy was the muthafuckin’ man…

“There is a catcher that any big league club would love. His name is Gibson…. He can do everything. He hits the ball a mile. And he catches so easy he might as well be in a rocking chair. Throws like a rifle. Too bad this Gibson is a colored fellow.” – Walter Johnson on Josh Gibson
