Elements from the remarkable collection of Ted Williams memorabilia set to go on the auction block at Fenway Park later this month is now going on a mini publicity tour.
Think Williams and you usually think ‘Red Sox’, but after his playing days were over, Williams established a strong connection to Washington, D.C. He managed the Senators in the late 1960s and early 70s and his status as a war hero didn’t hurt his status with Washington’s elite, including presidents.
