Today's the day. The book is officially on sale. A HUGE thanks to all of you readers. Needless to say, without you, there would be no book.

Today's post is a personal one, I came across this paperback biography of Ted Williams while I was sorting through our baseball section. There's a gift inscription, from my grandfather to me, dated 1986. He passed away a few years ago... I like to think he'd be proud of me today.

This eternal kid is sticking this back on his bookshelf at home, where it belongs.

"Ted Williams: The Eternal Kid" by Ed Linn. Published by Sport Magazine, 1961.
