In Memorium ~

On September 20, 1960, against the Orioles, slugger Ted Williams fouled a ball off his foot in the first inning. He was unable to continue and had to be replaced by Hardy. It was the one and only time in Williams' 19-year career that someone had to pinch-hit for him. Hardy proceeded to pop into a double play. Williams had just five more games left in his MLB career and hit .375 with a home run in those games, so the injury didn't slow him down much.
