1. Ted Williams Honored At 1999 All-Star Game

Ted Williams was not known as the nicest guy in the world on and off the field.  Ted got so angry at the Boston faithful he actually wouldn’t tip his cap when he was cheered off the field.

That all changed when Ted was honored at the 1999 All-Star game in front of Red Sox nation.

Williams came out from the outfield bullpen to a standing ovation from the fans and admiration from the All-Stars playing in the 1999 game.

Williams was even moved by the moment as every All-Star wanted to come over to let the legend know how they felt about him.

Tony Gwynn took the honor of walking Williams out to the spot he would throw the first pitch of the game.  The site of two of the greatest pure hitters walking to the mound together gives me chills to this day.
