Default Re: Ted Williams and the Atlantic Salmon

Thanks for posting that. Mr Williams truely was one of my heros
He wasn't the nicest man however and there's a lot of stories.
One of my favorites was from Jack Gartside.
Apparently a young Jack waited to meet Williams at Fenway and afterwards went home to brag to his friends;

"Ted Williams spoke to me"
His friends wanted to know, "Well, what did he say?"
"He said, 'Get out of my way, kid'"
