Ted Williams, Bobby Doerr, Dom DiMaggio and Johnny Pesky were immortalized in David Halberstam's classic "The Teammates: Portrait of a Friendship." It is one of the best baseball books you can ever read.

Great to see the oldest living Hall of Famer back at Fenway. (Bobby Doerr). He was my Dad's favorite player.

Pesky is the only non HoF Red Sox to have his number retired. He is a wonderful man.

Dom should be in the HoF but he was always unfairly compared to his brother.

Ted - man is in THREE Hall of Fames - baseball, fishing and avaiation. John Glenn said Williams was the best pilot he ever saw.
