There Goes Ted Williams
The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived

author/illustrator: Matt Tavares

Ted Williams lived a life of dedication and passion. He was an ordinary kid who wanted one thing: to hit a baseball better than anyone else. So he practiced his swing every chance he got. He did fingertip push-ups. He ate a lot of food. He practiced his swing again. And then practiced it some more. From his days playing ball in North Park as a kid to his unmatched .406 season in 1941 to his heroic tours of duty as a fighter pilot in World War II and Korea, the story of Teddy Ballgame is the story of an American hero. In this engrossing biography, a companion to Henry Aaronís Dream, Matt Tavares makes Ted Williamsís life story accessible to a whole new generation of fans who are sure to admire the hard work, sacrifice, and triumph of the greatest hitter who ever lived.
Back matter includes an authorís note, Ted Williamsís career statistics, and a bibliography.

A lively picture book biography of Ted Williams from a master of the genre ó just in time for Fenway Park's centennial.
