Summary
  • In this poignant memoir, Claudia Williams, the last surviving child of legendary Boston Red Sox great and Hall of Famer Ted Williams, tells her father's story, including never before told anecdotes about his life on and off the field that reveal the flesh and blood man behind "The Kid." Born after her father retired from baseball, Claudia Williams grew up with little idea that her dad was one of the most revered sports figures of all time, until she finally saw him in uniform at Fenway Park, receiving the adulation of thousands of fans
  • Now in this moving and surprising memoir, Claudia offers an unexpected look at Ted Williams, viewed from a unique and fresh perspective. Here she recalls her childhood growing up with a baseball legend after his heyday, capturing their loving yet tumultuous relationship, and shares the beloved stories he passed on to her. Reconciling his talent on the field with his life off of it, Claudia reveals the myriad passions, including baseball and much more, which shaped who he was. She also speaks candidly for the first time about his controversial choice to be cryogenically preserved after his death. Complete with sixteen pages of never before seen color photographs, told with sincerity and heart, Claudia William's poignant memoir is a love letter to New England and one of its greatest sons, Ted Williams, the champion, the man, and most importantly, the father
