Default 61 years ago today - Ted Williams' last home run

September 28, 1960 - 61 years ago. Ted Williams hit his famous home run in his final at bat, at Fenway Park on a rainy afternoon. My dad was at the game, and nearly ended up with the home run ball! It was headed right for him, right behind the Red Sox bullpen - but hit the fence above the bullpen and landed in the pen. The front page of the Boston Globe from the next day shows where the ball landed in the pen - my dad is the one I highlighted in the red box.

Included here as well are a ticket stub and program from that final game, along with the program for Ted's first game at Fenway in 1939, a pre-season exhibition in April vs. the crosstown Braves.

Dad is now 86 and going strong, and still speaks vividly about that day. He got me started on my love of Williams and vintage baseball.

Let me see some Williams items in honor of today's anniversary!
