His goal was to have people say, "There goes Ted Williams, the greatest hitter who ever lived." 
To me, The Kid is always my guy for the most beautiful swing, and the greatest hitter ever. 
 Many hitting records were shattered in the steroid era, but not Ted's '41 season average of .406. That will never be touched. 
I couldn't wait to paint him, I have so many images of him to paint, but this one will always be the first one.
*fun fact he had 6 sacrifices that summer which were still an at bat in '41, so  it would be .412.
