    ITEM#: 2513755

    Ted Williams was the last man to bat .400 in major league baseball, was the winner of the American League batting championship six times and, in 1966, was named to the Baseball Hall of Fame. He is now considered our country's leading sports fisherman, and co-authored, with John Underwood, Fishing "The Big Three" and his autobiography, My Turn at Bat, both published by Simon and Schuster.
    Now fully revised with new illustrations and diagrams, the classic—and still the greatest—book on hitting from the last baseball player to break the magic .400 barrier, Ted Williams.

    Ted Williams was arguably the greatest pure hitter who ever lived. A lifelong student of hitting, he sought advice from every great hitter—and pitcher—he met. Drawing on that advice, as well as his own legendary life in baseball, Williams produced the all-time batting classic, The Science of Hitting. Using its detailed illustrations, anecdotes, and concise coaching, players of all skill levels will learn how to improve their fundamentals and gain keen insights into the finer points of hitting, including:

    •How to Think Like a Pitcher and Guess the Pitch
    •The Three Cardinal Rules for Developing a Smooth Line-Driving Swing
    •The Secrets of Hip and Wrist Action
    •Pitch Selection
    •Hitting the Opposite Way

    The Science of Hitting is a must-read for all baseball players looking to improve their turn at bat and for all coaches and parents teaching the sport.
