All Time Left Fielder

Ted Williams

1939 - 1960

2292 games, 521 home runs, .344 batting average

Regarded by many as the best pure hitter to ever play the game, Williams didn't falter as he aged--winning the AL batting crown at age 39 and again the following year. He won the batting crown in 1941, 1942, 1947, 1948, 1957, and 1958 and probably would have won additional titles had he not taken off for military service in both WWII and the Korean War. He also won the triple crown in 1942 and 1947 but is best known for being the last man to hit over .400 in 1941 when he finished with a .406 average. Elected to the Hall of Fame in 1966, Williams' number 9 was formally retired in 1984.
