Ted Williams & Tom Yawkey
In 1939, the Red Sox purchased the contract of outfielder Ted Williams from the minor league San Diego Padres of the Pacific Coast League, ushering in an era of the team sometimes called the "Ted Sox." Williams consistently hit for both high power and high average, and is generally considered one of the greatest hitters of all time. The right-field bullpens in Fenway were built in part for Williams' left-handed swing, and are sometimes called "Williamsburg." Before this addition, it was over 400 feet (120 m) to right field. .He served two stints in the United States Marine Corps as a pilot and saw active duty in both World War II and the Korean War, missing at least five full seasons of baseball.^ He served two stints in the United States Marine Corps as a pilot and saw active duty in both World War II and the Korean War, missing at least five full seasons of baseball.

^ The Red Sox have always had a roster full of elite MLB talent and can make a push for the World Series any and every season.

^ This rivalry has produced some of the most memorable games in baseball history both regular season and during the playoffs, as well as some of baseball's most memorable bench-clearing brawls.

With Williams, the Red Sox reached the 1946 World Series, but lost to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games in part because of the use of the "Williams Shift," a defensive tactic in which the shortstop would move to the right side of the infield to make it harder for the left-handed-hitting Williams to hit to that side of the field. .Some have claimed that he was too proud to hit to the other side of the field, not wanting to let the Cardinals take away his game.^ Some have claimed that he was too proud to hit to the other side of the field, not wanting to let the Cardinals take away his game.
