Ted Williams: the greatest hitter who ever lived?

The Colin McEnroe Show

During his remarkable career with the Boston Red Sox, Ted Williams earned many nicknames: The Kid, The Splendid Splinter, Teddy Ballgame… but the only nickname that he ever wanted was “the greatest hitter who ever lived.” And maybe he really was? He’s baseball’s all-time leader in on-base percentage, and he’s second behind only Babe Ruth in both slugging and on-base plus slugging percentages. He’s the last guy to hit .400, and that was 80 years ago. And on top of all that, he lost close to five full seasons (and three of them in the prime of his career) to serve in two different wars. This hour, a look at the man, the hitter, and the pitchman (you see what I did there) that was Ted Williams. GUESTS: Jim Baumer - A Maine-based writer and the author of Moxie: Maine in a Bottle Nick Davis - Produced and directed Ted Williams: “The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived”; his newest film, about the 1986 New York Mets, is Once Upon a Time in Queens Sam Miller - National baseball writer at ESPN Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter. Colin McEnroe and Catie Talarski contributed to this show, which originally aired July 19, 2018.Support the show: http://www.wnpr.org/donateSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Chief Ted Williams, Chippewas of Rama First Nation, ON Ep.28

Land Decolonized

Chief Edward (Ted) Williams of the Chippewas of Rama First Nation is on the show this week. The home of the popular and successful "Casino Rama" development, Chief Williams speaks to dealing with COVID-19, and plans for reopening the community with a large retail centre. Having a deep history in lands related work dating back to the early 1970s, he says the land code was part of community planning, and Rama was one of the early adopters to sign onto the Framework on First Nation Land Management from the beginning. Rama has had a history of exploring opportunities and moving quickly and believes communities should take this step towards land management because, "its our land, its our voice and its our control." SHOW NOTES:34  Richard welcomes Chief Ted Williams to the podcast.:52  Chief outlines his community's response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The Band got out in front of this issue. The famous Rama Casino has been closed. Despite its economic importance, it will not open until the time is right. Usually two to three million visitors per year!2:35  They handled Covid planning in earnest about ten days before it happened. 3:27  Chief has been involved with land for more than 40 years. They has surrendered some land for an industrial park in the early 80s and had clients. They won bid for Casino Rama in 1974, and wanted to place it on the waterfront but the community said no. Its current location was supposed to be temporary. Casino open now for 25 years and is a huge employer and revenue generator. Economic development has always been a priority.6:24  Rama became one of the first signatories to the framework agreement in the mid-90s.6:56  What does 'speed of business' mean to him? A good example is cannabis. Land was designated commercial earlier and retail operation opened quickly.8:23   Great to be able to pick up the phone and deal quickly. Cutting out Ottawa for approvals around land use is ideal because no one knows about the land more than the community.9:15  36,000 square foot retail building is open to leasing arrangements and lots of inquiries locally and national companies who want to locate at Rama. Building will be filled before Christmas. Lots of jobs and feeding other Band businesses, including two Tim Hortons outlets, the only Nation in Canada having two.11:18  Chief describes the process of developing land and the role of council, staff and land code committee. Based on community's strategic planning and local input. No more waiting for Indian Affairs.13:15  Band has settled two treaty negotiations and other items are under discussion that could involve further development. Possible land purchases and additions to reserve.14:44  Resource Centre staff were fabulous in development of a land code promotion strategy for on and off-reserve members (mentions Cassandra in particular). Very thorough campaign. with in-person, web, digital, mail and more venues for sharing information. It led to a Yes vote of 91%.18:20 Chief Williams shares his personal journey as it relates to colonization and the negative impact of an incomplete Canadian history. Being told what they should earn, where they should live, where to get spiritual needs met. Decolonization is about learning who you really are, where you come from and your own history. There is much work to be done .22:20  Has land code helped with decolonization? Yes, land is our Mother Earth and we need to look after it. It helps create pride and a feeling of identity. We choose. We can compete in the Canadian mosaic.24:30 What is his advice to other communities contemplating signing on to the framework agreement? You should be in control!25:25. Chief expresses his community's grief and sorrow over the beautiful lost souls no

(103) The Nats' Ted Williams, a Mets-Braves-Phillies Fight to the Death, and the Wet Dishrag Marlins : Storylines in the NL East

The Baseball Rabbi Podcast

The National League East looks like baseball's best division; four teams are among baseball's top thirteen, and its worst team may be better than the worst team in any other division. There are plenty of storylines to go around, including a discussion of the stars-and-scrubs Nationals, the pitching-rich Mets (and they can hit, too), the hitting-rich Braves (and they can pitch, too), the surprisingly good looking Phillies (who might be able to take the division), and the not surprisingly terrible Marlins who, as Pesach will tell you, stink. All this and more is inside for lucky Baseball Rabbi consumers, so listen now to become an educated connoisseur of America's national pastime (for now).

Mendocino County Supervisor Ted Williams on Local Government and the Pandemic

Mind Body Health & Politics

Many of you know that I have been active in founding the COVID Response Network (CRN) on the Northern California Coast. We must be prepared to stop this and all future pandemics, and I believe that an effective response begins at the local level.Here in Mendocino County, where I broadcast weekly, we are lucky to have a dedicated Board of Supervisors which responds to the needs of our residents. I recently sat down and spoke with Ted Williams – Supervisor for the 5th District of Mendocino County – about several issues of pressing national concern. Chief among these issues is the on-going COVID pandemic, the rollout of the vaccine, and how much longer we will need to continue measures such as social distancing and mask-wearing.It's rare to hear a public official speak as openly and transparently as Ted did with me.
