Ted Williams     (1930 - 2002)
Nickname: "The splendid Splinter" and "Teddy Ballgame"


Considered the greatest Major League Baseball hitter that ever lived, Ted Williams is the last to hit over .400 in a season.  That was in 1941 when his batting average was .406.  For his career, he earned a .344 batting average and his career on-base percentage of .482 is still a record today.

He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1961, his first year of eligibility.
