Here Is Our Acknowlegment of the Ted Williams Story

Not the actual head.

Forgive our insensitivity, but though it's obviously gross, we're having a hard time working ourselves up about the "they used Ted Williams's head for batting practice" story. We dunno. We guess once your idiot (and now deceased) son-in-law son chops off your head and freezes it against the wishes you specifically stated in your will ... jeez, after that, what does it really matter what they do to you? Just to wash the taste out of your mouth, here's John Updike's brilliant report from Williams's last game, "Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu." You'll feel better afterward.
