1. And you KNOW.........

that really had to chew at Williams' butt!!!!

And, yeah, sometimes it is difficult to separate the talent (pitching) from the brain (Bunning's politics).

2. Teddy baseball chewed his own with his own admission that if he would have

been willing to hit to left he 'would have hit a ton'. What a purist!

[I guess most of us have asked ourselves, 'what was I thinking back then ]

5. Only girl (young woman) to strike out Ted Williams

"Years later, Joyce met a man who fished with Williams in the Florida Keys. The man said he had once asked Williams to name the toughest pitcher he ever faced. "And he said, you won't believe this, but it was a girl."
