Tonight’s guest is baseball historian Bill Nowlin who is uniquely qualified to discuss Ted William’s career because Bill has been a lifelong Boston Red Sox fan and was one of the first fans to mob pitcher Jim Lonborg when he pitched the final out of the game that clinched the 1967 pennant for the Red Sox. Bill was elected Vice President of SABR in 2004 and served five terms in that capacity before becoming director in 2016.
Last April Bill Nowlin released his latest book “The Kid Blasts a Winner: Ted Williams' 110 Game-Deciding Home Runs”. This book is a labor of love for Nowlin where he painstakingly chronicles every game-winning home run in the Splendid Splinter’s immortal baseball career.
If you are a Red Sox fan and a Ted Williams fan then this book is a must-read.
