GREATEST HEROES ASSORTMENT
- These figures will come in the new open window style packaging.
If you are not familiar with Ted Williams' background, you may wonder why Hasbro would make this figure, here's why: As an outfielder for the Boston Red Sox, Williams was such a prolific hitter he became known by the nickname "The Splendid Splinter." He stands today as the last player to reach a better than .400 batting average in one season, but when duty called, Williams answered. He left baseball for nearly five full seasons to serve in World War II and the Korean conflict. He is not only a sports hero, but also a war hero, and epitomizes American values. This figure comes decked out in full pilot's gear, including flight suit, jacket, helmet, goggles, vest and dog tags, a baseball and a bat. This set will be available in July.
