THE LAST .400 HITTER reviews the sights, sounds, and smells of what may be the most pivotal year for America in this century, placing the diamond escapades of Ted Williams and his colleagues squarely within the rich social context of an era closer in time to Queen Victoria--and Wee Willie Keeler--than to the world today. But it is the baseball, and Williams's feats in particular, that is the central focus of this book. Holway provides a dazzling and colorful play-by-play, day-to-day account of that season of seasons which saw Warren Spahn make his rookie debut, the wonder of Joe DiMaggio's mind-boggling 56-game hitting streak, and The Kid, Ted Williams.
