Ted Williams, one of the most fabulous figures who ever swung a bat, ended his brilliant, stormy and spectacular baseball career at Fenway Park yesterday by blasting the 521st home run of his life into the center field bleachers.
The dramatic clout came in the eighth inning on Williams’ final fling at an American League pitcher. The count was 1-1. Williams had looked at the first pitch for a ball. The second pitch was a high, hard one on which Williams swung and missed.
