Jay Sawyer of Glenview, IL is a big baseball fan who believes that hitting a baseball is the hardest skill in sports, a skill that, unlike those in other major sports, is largely unchanged from the early 1900s. He goes on to say that no one was ever better at hitting a baseball than Ted Williams, and that if he were playing today, he would be the best hitter at present.
Jay Sawyer of Glenview, IL feels that Ted's numbers are staggering. With a career on-base percentage of .483, he had the highest slugging percentage in the 1940s and 1950s. No player has ever led in that category for consecutive decades till date. Williams led the American League in slugging and on-base percentage in the same season eight times, including 6 years in a row. He won 6 batting titles, 4 home runs crows, 2 MVPs, and 2 Triple Crows. His 1941, 42, and 46 seasons are among the 10 best in the history of baseball.
