Fans fantasize about great pitcher-batter match-ups and avid sports readers cherish their favorite author-subject pairings. In our opinion, John Updike on Ted Williams ranks right up there with A.J. Liebling on Bob Gibson. Hub Fans Bid Kid Adieu recovers a neglected little classic just in time: Updike prepared this commemorative edition only a few months before his recent death. To his original essay, written when he was just 28, the award-winning author added an autobiographical preface and a substantial new afterword. An essay that would make even Ted Williams proud.
