6 – TED WILLIAMS
Like Mickey Mantle, Ted Williams played his entire 19-season career with one team. As a left fielder for the Boston Red Sox, Williams saw his professional career sidelined twice due to his service in World War II and the Korean War. Regardless, he still retired with 521 home runs and a .482 on-base percentage—the highest in Major League history.
Williams was a 19-time All-Star, a two-time Triple Crown winner, twice designated as the American League’s Most Valuable Player, and a six-time American League batting champion.
