Abstract:

Ted Williams is our greatest living expert on how to hit a baseball -- the last baseball player to hit .400 in the major leagues. Williams's career hitting statistics will stand forever as a monument to his complete mastery of the single most difficult thing to do in sport: .344 lifetime batting average, 521 home runs, 1839 RBI and 2654 hits. The Science of Hitting has reigned as the classic handbook on hitting since being published in 1971, and now it's even better! Ted's hitting advice has been updated, and exciting new color graphics and photos have been added to enhance your reading pleasure. The Gallery of Great Hitters has been expanded to include Ted's choices for the best hitters of the 70s and 80s. Look inside to see who made the cut! You'll still find all of Ted's great advice on how to improve your turn at bat and become the best hitter possible. Learn: how to think like a pitcher and guess the pitch; three cardinal rules for developing a smooth line-drive swing; the secrets of hip and wrist action; pitch selection; bunting; hitting the opposite way; and much more! - Back cover.
