Nicknamed “Teddy Ballgame’, ‘the kid’, ‘the splendid splinter’ and ‘the thumper’, Williams is regarded as one of the greatest hitters in American baseball history.
Williams was a nineteen-time All -star a two-time recipient of the American League (AL)Most Valuable player award, a six-time AL batting champion and a two-time Triple Crown winner. He finished his playing career with a .344 batting average, 521 home runs, and a .482 on-base percentage the highest of all time.

We are in the midst of appraising a collection at an estate in Long Island that is filled with Ted Wiliams items that the owner had acquired from the son of Ted Williams, John Williams. John Williams is the only son of Ted Williams, and his third wife Dolores Wettach.

John Henry's lawyer produced an informal family pact signed by Ted, John Henry, and Claudia in which they agreed "to be put into biostasis after we die" to "be able to be together in the future, even if it is only a chance.
