Ted Williams American MastersTed Williams: “The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived” 

Friday, July 20, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
MPT Visitors Center
Owings Mills, MD

During his remarkable career with the Boston Red Sox, Ted Williams earned many nicknames – The Kid, The Splendid Splinter and Teddy Ballgame, but the only nickname that he wanted was “the greatest hitter who ever lived.” In that pursuit, he combined his preternatural gifts with a fierce work ethic to become widely regarded as one of the greatest ever to play the game of baseball and in the process elevated the science of hitting in ways still emulated today.

The new documentary from THIRTEEN’s American Masters, co-produced by Albert M. Tapper Productions, in association with Major League Baseball, David Ortiz’ Big Papi Productions and Nick Davis Productions, explores not only the Baseball Hall of Famer’s remarkable on-field accomplishments but also his complicated relationships with his family, teammates, press, fans and himself. The program honors Williams’ centennial (August 30, 1918 – July 5, 2002), and marks the first baseball subject in the American Masters series’ 32-year history.

Ted Williams: “The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived” airs on MPT-HD on Monday, July 23, 2018, at 9:00 pm.
