On This Day In Baseball History: September 28, 1960

Ted Williams

 

Boston Red Sox legend Ted Williams homers in his final Major League at bat, which happened to be at Fenway Park. Williams career average of .344 is tied for 7th best all-time, his 521 career homers is tied with Willie McCovey and Frank Thomas for 17th all-time, and his .481 career on-base percentage is still the all-time best. Williams had such a keen eye that an umpire once told a catcher in response to a pitch being called a ball that, “If Mr. Williams didn’t swing at it, it wasn’t a strike.”
