Ted Williams, the last player to bat over .400 in a single season (.406 in 1941), ended his 21-year career with the Boston Red Sox with a dramatic home run in his last at-bat on September 28, 1960. This historic sequence shows the ball falling into Fenway Park’s right field bullpen after the slugger's career-ending home run swing, Ted rounding the bases, receiving clubhouse congratulations, and hanging up his Red Sox #9 for the last time.
David Marlin photographed the famous home run on September 28, 1960 in black & white using a Bell & Howell 16mm camera. His award winning images represent the only movie footage shot from the first base box that day and the limited edition print "The Final Swing" captures the memories of this historic event!
