Ted Williams: An Immortal Man

Ted Williams is the subject of the latest ESPN 30 for 30 Short. The title of the piece is called An Immortal Man and it focuses on what happened to the body of Ted Williams after he died. This is not the most fun topic as the details are pretty gruesome. You also get the feeling that this is not what Ted Williams would have wanted. That fact alone, makes the story pretty sad and disturbing. You can check it out here.

A little over three years ago I did an interview with Bruce Spitzer who wrote a book called Extra Innings. It was a fantasy novel about Ted Williams coming back to life and playing baseball in the future. It is a great book because not only does it deal with Ted Williams the baseball player but Ted Williams the person. As great as Teddy was on the field, he struggled off of it with relationships.

Here is the podcast I did with Bruce Spitzer. You can also buy the book at a discount price if you click on the link below:
Extra Innings: He was the greatest hitter of all time. Cryonics brought him back to life in 2092. Would he use this second chance to win his first World Series or to become a better man?
