PERSPECTIVES: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams

 

   Louie talks with Ben Bradlee, Jr., the author of "The Kid: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams."  Ted Williams was notorious for his cockiness and his rages on the ball field.  Ben's book reveals the shame Ted Williams felt over his Mexican heritage, the abandonment he felt at home, the risks he took in supporting the integration of Blacks in the Major Leagues, and his controversial decision to cryonically preserve his body.  http://www.benbradleejr.com/
