    Re: the splendid splinter

    Ted Williams and Muhammad Ali set the standard for amazing athletic productivity in spite of years lost in their respective primes.
    Williams also defined the prototype of the "born" hitter: 20/10 vision in his right eye (vision of a pilot) with hand-to-eye coordination good enough to be the self-proclaimed "best fly fisherman" of all time.
    In his refinement of acheivement, Williams was also a pioneer. I think he may have been one of the very first prodigious talents who also obsessively worked at his craft, yielding a glimpse of what was possible when talent fused with training. Could Williams have been the first "freak" to work at his game?
