Headed "TedWilliams/and Friends". Captioned at bottom: "It was a sight to see at Fenway as/Ted Williams, in his final time at bat,/smashed a 450-foot homer, the 521st of/Ted's career..." None of the other signers were part of the 1960 Boston Red Sox roster, Williams' last season. However, they were all part of the 1946 Boston Red Sox roster, which fought the St. Louis Cardinals to seven games in the World Series before losing 4-3. It was their last American League pennant for 19 years. This roster produced eight All Stars in 1946, including Williams, Doerr, Pesky and DiMaggio, and two Hall of Famers in Williams and Doerr. WILLIAMS (1918-2002, born in San Diego, California) played outfield for the Boston Red Sox from 1939-1960, taking off time to fight in World War II and Korea. He was the last to hit over .400 (.406 in 1941), leading the American League in hitting six times. His lifetime batting average is .344 with 521 home runs. The Splendid Splinter's accomplishments include two Triple Crowns, two MVPs, six American League batting championships and 18 All-Star Game selections. Hall of Famer DOERR, born in 1918 in Los Angeles, California, was second baseman with the Boston Red Sox from 1937 to 1944 and from 1947 to 1951. A nine-time All Star, he had a career batting average of .288 - with three seasons over .300 and 13 out of 14 seasons with 100 or more hits - as well as 223 home runs and 1,247 RBIs. He also hit for the cycle in a 19-6 blowout of the Chicago White Sox on May 13, 1947 and led the league in triples in 1950. PESKY (1919-2012) was a contact hitter with a .307 career batting average who played most of his Major League career with the Boston Red Sox (1942-1952, with three years out for military service) before finishing his career with Detroit and Washington. An All-Star in 1946 and good fielder who could play third and second base as well as shortstop, Pesky is also seen as the fielding "goat" of the 1946 World Series. Red Sox fans still debate whether Pesky did or did not hesitate on a relay throw from the outfield, allowing Enos Slaughter to score the Cardinals' Series-winning run in game seven. Pesky later managed the Bosox and covered them in the broadcast booth. The tall, yellow foul pole down the right field line in Fenway Park is nicknamed "Pesky's pole." Outfielder DOM DiMAGGIO (1917-2009, born Dominic Paul DiMaggio in San Francisco, California) played for the Boston Red Sox from 1940 to 1942 and 1946 to 1953. The youngest and smallest of the three DiMaggio brothers, the bespectacled centerfielder made the All-Star team seven times. He set the pace for consistency, hitting in 34 straight games in 1949 and another 27 straight in 1951, and scoring more than 100 runs seven times. He led the American League in runs scored in 1950 and 1951 and in stolen bases in 1950. PELLAGRINI (1918-2006, born in Boston, Massachusetts) was a baseball player who played major league ball from 1946 to 1949 and from 1951 to 1954. He began in the minors in 1938 but had his career put on hold from 1942 to 1945 by World War II. He hit a home run in his first major league at-bat with the Boston Red Sox in 1946. The 1946 Bosox was his only pennant team. He had a career batting average of .226 with 20 home runs and 133 RBI. After leaving the majors, he became baseball coach for Boston College from 1958 to 1988; he missed the 1969 season due to illness. He led the Boston College Eagle to three appearances in the College World Series in 1960, 1961 and 1967 and two NCAA tourney appearances in 1962 and 1966. Glass is scratched. Otherwise in fine condition.
