This Day in Red Sox History: The Speed of Ted Williams?




On this day in 1960 at Fenway Park, the Red Sox down the Indians, 6 - 4. Vic Wertz hits a three-run homer and drives in four runs. Ted Williams also homers and, in the 7th inning, steals second base.

Williams sets a major-league record as the only player to steal bases in four consecutive decades: he'll be matched by Rickey Henderson in 2000 and Tim Raines the following year.
