    Notes: viii, 855 pages. Illustrations. Footnotes. Appendices. Notes. Bibliography. Index. DJ has slight wear and soiling. Ben Bradlee Jr. (born August 7, 1948) is an American journalist and writer. He was a reporter and editor at The Boston Globe for 25 years, including a period when he supervised the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation into sexual abuse by priests in the Boston archdiocese, and is the author of a comprehensive biography of Ted Williams. Bradlee spent most of his career at The Boston Globe, where he was successively investigative reporter, national correspondent, and editor. In 1993, he was promoted to Assistant Managing Editor responsible for investigations and projects. He left the Globe in 2004 to work on a biography of Ted Williams, which ultimately took ten years of in-depth research to finish. The Kid: The Immortal Life of Ted Williams was released in 2013. It received favorable reviews, highlighting the author's research into Williams' concealed Mexican-American identity and troubled family relationships (which culminated in the disputed cryonic preservation of Williams' head and torso). The book, which was a New York Times bestseller. Sprawling, entertaining life of the baseball great, renowned as a sports hero while leading a life as checkered as Babe Ruth's or Ty Cobb's. Bradlee acknowledges him as "the greatest hitter who ever lived, " and few in baseball have bettered Williams' numbers. Like Ruth, Williams was a bruiser with a chip on his shoulder; like Cobb, race was his bête noire, for, as Bradlee reveals, Williams had a Mexican mother and took great pains to conceal that ancestry, both fearful of discrimination and perhaps with an element of self-loathing. Williams had a reputation as a military hero as well, which he did nothing to gainsay, even if he did his best to stay out of the draft in World War II and resisted his reactivation during the Korean War. The author does nothing to diminish Williams' outsized stature as a player. Bradlee is as enthusiastic as Vin Scully or Harry Caray when it comes to describing Williams on the field. An outstanding addition to the literature of baseball.
