Johnny DamonJohnny Damon's sixth-inning blooper off of Reds starter Edinson Volquez on Wednesday tied him with Ted Williams on the all-time hit list at 2,654.

"It seems whoever I pass right now, it's somebody very good," Damon told the Tampa Tribune on Tuesday. "I'm just proud of the fact that I've been able to have this long of a career, but Ted Williams is sentimental to me, because I was with the Red Sox when he passed (2002), and we honored him on the field, and at the time my son was, I believe 3, and he was able to be on the field with me wearing a Ted Williams jersey."

Damon played four seasons with the Red Sox and did something Williams was never able to do, win a World Series title.

It should be noted, of course, Williams missed three full seasons due to World War II and most of two more to serve in the Korean War.

What an asinine comment, what in the hell does that have to with Damon tying Williams on the hit list. Back when Williams was playing, it's was a whole lot harder to get to the World Series than it is now. That being said, there is someting Damon will never be, is be a Hall Of Famer like Teddy Ballgame.

We all make mistakes.  I once heard about a politician who didn't know the difference between John Wayne and John Wayne Gacy.

Williams' Military Service

Let's not forget that Ted missed 5 years in the prime of his career to serve as a pilot in World War II & Korea which greatly diminished his career totals.  A fun fact is that he served as John Glenn's wingman in Korea.
