#9 Ted Williams - "Teddy Ballgame" - 9" x 12" acrylic on paper. Ted Williams finished with a career batting average of .344. Despite missing three years to military service, he hit 512 homeruns and 1839 RBI. Seventeen times an all-star, twice won the AL MVP and two times won the triple crown. Williams has the highest on base percentage in history - .482. The last man to hit .400 and simply the greatest hitter who ever lived. The only other 9 of note to me was Graig Nettles. Atlanta players to don number 9 - Terry Pendleton and Marquis Grissom. A ton of good players a #8 - tough choice for sure.
