Although I agree with the placement of almost all of his picks, though I do question Chuck Klein's inclusion in this list instead of such notables as Napoleon Lajoie and Honus Wagner, Williams falls short in making the argument that baseball must be looked on as a continuum so that all statistics should be looked at as comparable.

For fans of all ages, Ted Williams' Hit List offers a glimpse into the glorious past and serves as a valuable reminder of what is still great about our "National Pastime.

Кажется, что новое поколение высокотехнологичных приборов, контролирующих состояние тела, измеряющих частоту сердечных сокращений, фазы сна, количество совершаемых в день шагов, придуманы для профессиональных спортсменов. Но специалист по статистике Талита Уильямс убедительно доказывает, что каждый из нас должен ежедневно измерять и записывать простые данные о своём теле, потому что они могут рассказать намного больше, чем может быть известно врачам.

No one knew more about hitting baseballs than Ted Williams, and he was a great judge of many of the other great hitters in the sport. There are other similar books out there but I doubt that there was anyone more qualified to write so expertly on this subject. You may have some disagreement about the exact order he placed these men in, and he didn't put himself on the list! But this is a must read for anyone who loves baseball and the great players.

Despite Ted Williams' personal choice of Babe Ruth as the greatest hitter of all time, followed by Lou Gehrig, Jimmie Foxx, and Rogers Hornsby, this reviewer will never be convinced that Williams is anything but the greatest himself. Although I agree with the placement of almost all of his picks, though I do question Chuck Klein's inclusion in this list instead of such notables as Napoleon Lajoie and Honus Wagner, Williams falls short in making the argument that baseball must be looked on as a continuum so that all statistics should be looked at as comparable. With this argument, the gaudy averages and totals of the mid and late 1920s and 1930s will always come out on top, and, hence, Ruth, Gehrig, Foxx, and Hornsby will too. Al Simmons will also be given a ranking. With due respect to these players, who do deserve their reputations as all-time greats, in my opinion, league dominance should be rated more highly than sheer numbers. With this rating, players like Wagner and Lajoie would hold a greater chance of making this list, despite poor power numbers in comparison to later-day players. Other than this problem with his argument, fans of baseball and baseball statistics should be able to relax and enjoy Williams' _Hit List_ before adding it to their arsenal in the on-going battle of who was the greatest hitter ever.
