Ted Williams

Age: 83

Boston Red Sox legend, whose passion for hitting was unrivaled, as were his results. His career .344 batting average is sixth-highest since 1900, he won the American League batting title six times, and his 521 career home runs place him 12th on the all-time list. Williams missed all or part of five seasons due to military service as a pilot in WWII and the Korean War.

Died: Inverness, Fla., July 5, 2002
