Hall-of-fame Boston Red Sox outfielder Ted Williams retired from baseball in 1960 with a mind-boggling .344 career batting average. “The Splendid Splinter” leads the franchise’s all-time roster determined by Wins Above Replacement by a huge margin, despite missing three seasons during his prime to serve in the US Navy and Marine Corps during World War II.
