Ted Williams quotes:
  • "A man has to have goals - for a day, for a lifetime - and that was mine, to have people say, 'There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever lived.'"
  • "I hope somebody hits .400 soon. Then people can start pestering that guy with questions about the last guy to hit .400."
  • "I've found that you don't need to wear a necktie if you can hit."
