There Goes Ted Williams
The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived
author/illustrator: Matt Tavares
Ted Williams 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. 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 stints as a fighter pilot in World War II and Korea, the story of Teddy Ballgame is the story of an American hero.
“A glorious tribute to a baseball legend and a complicated human being.” —School Library Journal
