Now fully revised with new illustrations and diagrams, the classic—and still the greatest—book on hitting from the last baseball player to break the magic .400 barrier, Ted Williams.

Ted Williams was arguably the greatest pure hitter who ever lived. A lifelong student of hitting, he sought advice from every great hitter—and pitcher—he met. Drawing on that advice, as well as his own legendary life in baseball, Williams produced the all-time batting classic, The Science of Hitting. Using its detailed illustrations, anecdotes, and concise coaching, players of all skill levels will learn how to improve their fundamentals and gain keen insights into the finer points of hitting, including:

-How to Think Like a Pitcher and Guess the Pitch
-The Three Cardinal Rules for Developing a Smooth Line-Driving Swing
-The Secrets of Hip and Wrist Action
-Pitch Selection
-Bunting
-Hitting the Opposite Way

The Science of Hitting is a must-read for all baseball players looking to improve their turn at bat and for all coaches and parents teaching the sport.

Player Biography
Theodore Samuel Williams had only one goal in life: to walk down the street and have people say, “There goes the greatest hitter who ever lived.” In a 19-year career with the Boston Red Sox, twice interrupted by military service, “The Splendid Splinter” won two Triple Crowns, two Most Valuable Player awards and six batting championships. He retired with a career average of .344, and remains the last player to top .400 for a full season when he hit .406 in 1941. With keen eyesight, quick wrists and a simple motto – “Get a good ball to hit” – Williams compiled strong evidence that he achieved his goal.
