First edition of this first-hand account of this “unique season” (Ted Williams), with 16 pages of photographs, signed on the half title by Ted Williams, Dom DiMaggio, and Bill Gilbert.
The Boston Red Sox' star centerfielder claims that "1941 was the last original baseball season"— jumping to another team was inconceivable, moving a franchise to another city was unthinkable, and then came artificial grass.
