Among the presenters were Bill Monbouquette, who talked about brushbacks and pitching inside with some good anecdotes about Ted.  In addition, Bruce Markusen discussed his new book Ted Williams, created for adolescent readers.  Other presenters included Maj. Gen. Larry Taylor, Alan Pierce, Dave McCarthy of the Ted Williams Museum, John Holway, Steve Ferroli, and Leigh Montville.

The next Ted Williams weekend is tentatively scheduled for Memorial Day Weekend 2005.  Contact Bill Nowlin for more details.
