Theodore Samuel Williams--August 30, 1918-July 5, 2002

San Diego and our SABR chapter are closely related to Ted Williams…in 1991 we received his permission to proudly use his name to honor our chapter.

Then, in 2000, our chapter selected him as the most influential person in baseball in San Diego during the 20th century. Is it really any wonder? He was born in San Diego, played winter league and high school baseball here, joined the PCL Padres in their maiden season directly from high school, and helped them to the playoffs in both the 1936 and 1937 seasons. In 1937 they swept through the playoffs for San Diego’s first PCL championship. The name…and the individual…Ted Williams was synonymous with San Diego and baseball for nearly two-thirds of the 20th century.
