1960 Ted Williams Last Game Program

1960 Ted Williams Last Game Program

Talk about the world's greatest exits! This is a SCORED program from Ted Williams' exit from playing Major League baseball, one for the ages. The Red Sox were playing out the string in the 1960 season, and their last home game, before crowd of only 10,454, was against the Baltimore Orioles on September, 28th. Hall of Famer Williams, the last man to hit over .400, started the game in left field, batting third. In the 8th inning, with the Red Sox trailing 4-2, Williams pulled a pitch from Jack Fisher into the right field stands for a home run. Williams, who earlier in his career, after abuse from Red Sox fans, had vowed to never again tip his tap to acknowledge the Red Sox rooters, rounded the bases, and true to his code, never tipped his cap. In the top of the ninth Williams went to left field, but was replaced in order to give him another ovation. Williams ran off the field, again without the tipped cap, never again to play. Later, the Sox won, 5-4. But the story was Williams hitting a home run on his final swing. He sat out the team's final games, on the road against the New York Yankees. This program is meticulously scored in neat blue ink. Approximately 5.75x9.75". A rare, great find. By the time Williams hit his home run, many patrons had already exited on that cold and windy day. So a program, fully scored right to the end, is a wonderful, prized collectible.
