Raul Ibanez vs Ted Williams

by Bill Chuck on July 1, 2013

Raul Ibanez is chasing the ghost of Ted Williams. In 1960, Williams hit 29 homers, the most for anyone 41 or older. Raul, 41, has 19, hitting 10 in June.

Raul is already in select company as there have only been 26 batters 41+ years old who have hit as many as 10 homers in a season and only 13 have hit at least 15.
