Williams might have crossed np .he strntgey by pushing a ball into the vacant expanse, but he accepted the challenge, and hit a vicious grounder to Shortstop Boudreau, who threw him out from a normal second base position. Twice more the Indians used that defensive lineup against Williams, but. both times he walked to make the shift unnecessary. In his final time at bat there were men on base so the fielders played conventicli- ally. "If everybody starts playing me like that I'll just have to start batting right handed" Williams said, grinning, after the game. He brought his homer total to 26, his runs batted in to 82. his runs scored to 89. and hts bases on balls to 96, all tops (or both leagues in the greatest one-day performance of the season.
