Ted Williams (1918-2002) is regarded by many as the greatest player in
Boston Red Sox history.  In a career that spanned from 1939-42 and 1946-60,
Ted amassed career totals of a .344 batting average and 521 home runs, both
Red Sox career records.  Ted also played in 18 All-Star Games and the 1946
World Series against the St. Louis Cardinals.  Ted was elected to the
National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966 and the Red Sox Hall of Fame in 1995.

The Boston Chapter, SABR, was founded in 1999 to bring Boston-area members
together to study the history of baseball on both local and national levels.
In cooperation with the Society office in Cleveland, Ohio, the Boston
Chapter hosted the Annual Convention in 2002 with a record 700+ attendees.
Local events include semi-annual regional meetings and offseason "Hot Stove
League" gatherings at Boston-area brew pubs.  For more information visit
