Williams, Berra & Mantle Legends Of the Field GFA
Item Details
Description
Ted "The Splendid Splinter" Williams baffled pitchers with his unprecedented ability to place a batted ball seemingly anywhere he wanted. Ted Williams inspired a generation's worth of fans while setting the foundation for one of the greatest eras in baseball history. Williams was an obsessive student of hitting. He famously used a lighter bat than most sluggers, because it generated a faster swing. The hitting prowess of Williams allowed him to amass over 500 home runs, win 2 MVPs, become the last player to hit over .400 in a season, and be inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame on his first ballot. Williams holds the highest career batting average of anyone with 500 or more home runs. His best year was 1941, when he hit .406 with 37 HR, 120 RBI, and 135 runs scored. His .553 on base percentage set a record that stood for 61 years. Williams ended his career dramatically, hitting a home run in his very last at-bat on September 28, 1960. Ted Williams is one of only 29 players in baseball history to date to have appeared in Major League games in four decades. Lawrence Peter "Yogi" Berra (May 12, 1925 – September 22, 2015) was an American professional baseball catcher, manager, and coach who played 19 seasons in Major League Baseball (MLB) (1946–63, 1965), all but the last for the New York Yankees. An 18-time All-Star and 10-time World Series champion as a player, Berra had a career batting average of .285, while compiling 358 home runs and 1,430 runs batted in. He is one of only five players to win the American League Most Valuable Player Award three times. Widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in baseball history, Berra was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1972.Mickey "The Mick " Mantle from 1951 to 1968 patrolled center field with an unprecedented grace that left all privileged enough to see him play with memories to last a lifetime. Mickey Mantle was a star from the start, parlaying a talent for the game and boyish good looks into iconic status. Mantle was noted for his hitting ability, both for average and for power. On September 10, 1960, he hit a ball left-handed that cleared the right-field roof at Tiger Stadium in Detroit and, based on where it was found, was estimated years later by historian Mark Gallagher to have traveled 643 feet. Mantle accumulated a long list of impressive accomplishments finishing his 18-year career with 536 home runs, three MVP Awards (1956, '57, '62), and a Triple Crown (1956). Mantle contributed to 12 pennants and seven World Series titles in his first 14 seasons while establishing numerous World Series records, including most home runs.
