WITHOUT 'ROIDS:

What if Ted Williams never left baseball to serve in the military? (Ryan Spaeder, 7/04/16, Sporting News)


Williams actually managed to find some time to play for the Sox during the Korean War, playing 43 total games between 1952 and 1953. He batted .406/.508/.901 (269 OPS+) during that span and slugged home runs at a greater rate (11.82%) than Barry Bonds did during his record 2001 season (10.99%).
