Ted Williams SI Cover 1969 It's difficult to picture Ted Williams in anything but a Boston Red Sox uniform, but he was the manager of the lowly Washington Senators for a time. (In fact, Williams was the last manager the Senators ever had. He held that job from 1969 through 1971. When the team became the Texas Rangers in 1972, Williams managed the club in their first season.) Here he is on the cover of Sports Illustrated at age 50 in 1969.

I think the Senators finished second to the Orioles in '69 or '70.

I looked it up: The Washington Senators (under the guidance of manager Ted Williams) finished fourth in the AL East in 1969, finished 6th in 1970, and finished fifth in 1971.

I'm reminded of the line about the Senators. That went, Washington. First in war. First in peace. And last in the American League.
