Running the Red Sox, 1939 and Beyond: Ted Williams is Alive and Well

Ted Williams was born 100 years ago today in San Diego, California. He took his last swing 14 years before I was born. I never got to see him play which is probably why I started an Out of the Park Baseball world that went back to 1939 in an effort to re-write history.

I played the third game of the season on Ted's 100th birthday and fittingly he had himself a big day in Yankee Stadium. He would go deep twice. The first one was off of Bump Hadley of the New York Yankees. For this new history, it will go down as his first career homer. The Red Sox would still lose. Here is the game story and box score generated from the game.

Big Day at the Plate for Williams Not Enough for Red Sox 

The Boston Red Sox got a superb performance from right fielder Ted Williams, but the New York Yankees still won the game, 11-9. Williams was named the player of the game despite the loss. He slugged 2 home runs, while scoring 3 runs and driving in 4. The win moves New York to a record of 2-2.
Joe Gordon swatted a 2-run home run for New York in the bottom of the eighth. The second baseman went 2 for 5 for the game, including 1 home run and 1 double. He scored 2 runs and batted in 4. 

"Getting a lot of baserunners and getting some timely hits, it's a good combination," said Gordon.
