does anyone know who wore the number 9 for the Boston Red Sox while Ted was in the service in 1944?

From what I could find out, no one else wore that number while he was in the service.

I had to look it up, Teresa, but I found out that somebody named Johnny Peacock wore #9 for the Red Sox in 1944. I've never heard of him.

Great trivia question, Teresa. I'll try that one on a few of my baseball colleagues!

Johnny Peacock only played four games for the Red Sox in 1944 before being traded to the Philadelphia Phillies, so he didn't wear Ted Williams' number for long. Peacock had been Boston's catcher for a few years, though.

I think we can safely assume this is the most discussion Johnny Peacock's baseball career ever generated!
