1960 BOSTON RED SOX
The Red Sox made a few changes before the 1960 season. In the off-season they acquired Al Worthington from the Giants; got pitcher Tom Sturdivant from the Athletics for Pete Daley; firstbaseman Ron Jackson from the White Sox for pitcher Frank Baumann; traded Dick Gernert to the Cubs for pitcher Dave Hillman and Jim Marshall, and traded pitcher Al Schroll to the Cubs for the legendary Bobby Thomson.
Ted Williams could still hit, posting averages of .345, .356, .345, .388 and .328 for five straight years prior to the 1959 season. When he returned to Boston for the Sportsman's dinner in January, he stopped at Fenway. Ted wanted to redeem himself for his poor performance the season before and volunteered to take a pay cut. He signed his 1960 contract for $90K, with $60 in deferred payments. His desire was to play and reach 500 homers (he had 492).
Williams reported to spring training in Scottsdale on March 1st. His neck was still bothersome and he started to fear that he may not be able to make it through the whole year. After some discussion with Billy Jurges, Ted agreed to tutor the young hitters as a batting instructor also. One of the prospects was Carl Yastrzemski. The young Yaz found Ted difficult to follow because Williams was talking physics and bat speed. Yaz didn't get it, but he kept his mouth shut.
Whatever magic Billy Jurges had when he took over for Mike Higgins, as the Red Sox manager the year before, quickly disappeared. Frank Sullivan and Tom Brewer, the anchors of the staff, were on their way out and Bill Monbouquette was the rising pitching star, while Mike Fornieles was the mainstay of the bullpen.
The Sox opened the season in Washington on April 18th. With both Richard Nixon and President Eisenhower in attendance, Ted worked the count to 3-2 of Camilo Pascual in his first at bat. He crushed the next pitch into right center field, rising over the 32 ft high fence and landing 450 ft away. It tied him for fourth on the all-time home run list with Lou Gehrig. Only two other Sox batters could manage scratch singles off Pascual, who broke the Washington team strikeout record, fanning 15 batters. The Sox lost 10-1.
The next day, in the Fenway home opener against the Yankees. Ted belted another homer into the right field grandstand, but pulled a hamstring rounding the bases and went on the DL for a month. The game was lost when Roger Maris slugged two homers, a double and a single to beat the Sox, 8 to 4.
Back in Washington on April 22nd, Frank Malzone hit a home run and Vic Wertz drilled an 11th inning homer to carry the Sox to a 5-4 win. The next day Malzone hit another home run and the Sox won again, 8 to 3.
While Ted rode the bench there was a lot of front office intrigue. With the Sox floundering once again, a newspaper story emerged about dissension in the clubhouse, so Billy Jurges called a team meeting in New York on April 26th. Williams loudly backed his manger but the dark cloud remained.
On May 7th, Monbouquette pitched his best game in the majors thus far, a one-hitter, against the Tigers.
The Sox traded Nelson Chittum to the Dodgers for outfielder Rip Repulski and his eighth inning grandslam homer against the White Sox, on May 10th, gave the Sox a 9 to 7 victory. Vic Wertz also hit a grandslam earlier in the game.
Two days later on May 12th, Pete Runnels (.426 BA) lofted a wall-ball double in the bottom of the ninth inning with the bases loaded. It gave Tom Brewer, who had allowed just two-scattered hits, a 1 to 0 victory. It was Runnels' 14th hit in his last 25 at bats.
After winning 5 of the 6 games played to start the month of May and finding themselves only 1/2 game out of first place, the Red Sox proceeded to lose ten straight games. One of the main reasons the Sox were losing was their lack of hitting. During the losing streak, hitters average only six hits per game and only 2 1/2 runs. They spiraled to 8 1/2 games behind the league leaders.
On May 22nd, Ted Williams saw his first action in a month. He got two hits to boost his batting average from .154 to .250. The league batting leader, Pete Runnels, went 1 for 3 and ended the game with a .356 batting average.
The Sox stopped off in Minneapolis to play an exhibition game with their AAA farm club, the Millers on May 23rd. The Sox lost 1-0, managing only two hits, both by Bobby Thomson. The Millers top player, Carl Yastrzemski (.320 BA, 4 HRs), had one hit in four trips. Their other top prospect, Chuck Schilling (.360 BA) went 1-for-3.
The sniping kept going in the papers and finally on May 26th, Jurges called another meeting and called in the reporters. Williams was still protective of his manager and glared at the members of the press. Jurges demanded to know who was bad-mouthing him and demanded that the reporters tell him who it was. He then got lectured by a reporter, reminding him that they were not a part of the Boston Red Sox organization and owed him nothing.
The Sox traded Ron Jackson to the Milwaukee Braves for Ray Boone. Then they traded Gene Stephens to Baltimore for a young black ballplayer named Willie Tasby.
Ted Williams slowly boiled, as rumors swirled about him replacing Jurges as the Sox manager. Finally on June 8th with a 15-27 record, and the Red Sox in last place, 12 1/2 games out, depressed and exhausted from the strain of the job, Bill Jurges left the team for a rest of undetermined length. Coach Del Baker was named the interim manager.
Two days later, on June 10th, the Red Sox made it official. In a statement, Sox team officials announced that Billy Jurges was done and Mike Higgins was given his job back. Higgins' second go-round was different. This time he largely controlled the talent and seemed uninterested in making any changes and seemed to have a good relationship with all his players and the media. He also still was a close friendship with his drinking buddy, Tom Yawkey.
Higgins' feelings abut having black ballplayers on the club changed also. Pumpsie Green was already an established utility player with the team and Higgins continued to use him in that role. The newly acquired, Willie Tasby became the team's starting centerfielder, and he brought back Earl Wilson from Minneapolis in July.
On the field, having lost 11 of 12 games in June and now 13 games out, the Sox finally stopped a seven-game losing streak. They beat the Chicago White Sox, 5 to 4, in the first game of a doubleheader on June 11th. Two homers by Williams and Wertz, along with a superb pitching performance by Monbouquette, gave the Red Sox a 5 to 4 victory.
On June 17th Ted belted his 500th homer in Cleveland. It was his a rare "inside-the-park" home run. With Willie Tasby on first, Ted slammed the ball off Wynn Hawkins toward the six-foot screen at the 365 ft mark, in left-center field. Tito Francona ran back to the fence and got ready to leap, but the ball sailed five feet over his head and the Sox won, 3-1. In an interview later, Ted told reporters that he had had it and this would be his final year.
Ted proceeded to go on a tear over the next few weeks, hitting for both average and power. His 501st homer came two days later and in Kansas City on June 21st, he went 3-for-4 and knocked out two homers. Ted hit 11 homers in the month of June, the most since he had hit 13 in June, 1950.
But the Sox went 10-15 on their road trip, having lost seven of the games by one run. They were in the cellar, 17 games behind when they returned home at the end of the month.
On July 3rd the Sox unloaded on the Athletics at Fenway Park by a 13-2 score. After getting a hit in the first inning, in the fifth inning, he homered into the right field grandstand. It was his 14th of the season and 506th of his career.
On July 7th, the Sox broke out of a four game losing streak, beating the Senators, 4-2, in the second game of a doubleheader. In the first game, Ted went 3-for-4. His average was the highest of the season at .347, having knocked out 21 hits in his last 53 at bats. Of his 14 homers, 12 of them came in his last 80 at-bats. It was the best power streak of his career.
The Sox went on to win their next seven games. Monbouquette shut out the Yankees, 8 to 0 on July 8th. It was only the third time the Yankees had been shut out all season and it was the first time a right-handed pitcher had beaten them in over a month.
The next day, the Sox beat the Yankees again, 6 to 5. Vic Wertz was the batting star, knocking in four of the six runs on three hits, with a home run.
In the series finale on July 10th, Willie Tasby went 5-for-5 with a homer, double and three singles and Wertz hit a grandslam homer. The Sox swept New York three games straight, by winning 9 to 4 and moved out of the American League cellar.
The first game was played in Kansas City on July 11th, and Monbouquette was the starting pitcher for the American League. The NL Stars beat-up Monbo. In the first inning, Ernie Banks hit a two run homer as the NL picked up three runs on three hits and Del Crandall homered off him in the second inning. Ted, playing in his 17th All Star Game, pinch hit for Monbouquette in the second inning and grounded out. Neither Malzone (0 for 3) nor Runnels (0 for 1) got a hit.
Two days later, another All Star Game was played at Yankee Stadium. The National Leaguers shut out the American Leaguers, 6 to 0, on home runs by Eddie Mathews, Willie Mays, Stan Musial and Ken Boyer. Neither Malzone nor Runnels got a hit and Ted had a pinch-hit single.
Monbouquette redeemed himself when the Sox resumed play in Kansas City on July 15th. Monbo held the A's to seven hits and struck out nine batters, winning 2 to 1. Frank Malzone's double off the left field screen in the first inning, drove in Ted with the deciding run.
The Sox again won when Ike Delock shut-out the A's, 1-0 in the next game. Tasby's double off the screen scored Don Buddin with the only run in the eighth inning.
The sweep of the A's finished the seven-game winning streak on July 17th. Tom Brewer, hampered by a sore shoulder all season, won his sixth game and blasted a homer in the third inning. Tasby's hot bat continued to produce, with a triple and a double. He scored two runs including the game winner for the Sox, 4-2.
The Sox came back down to earth and lost three straight in Chicago. Good pitching had carried them during the streak, but it was their lack of consistent hitting that hampered them. In the last game of the series, they had 13 hits, got 15 men on base, and scored just one run. When Mike Higgins got his job back, Pete Runnels was batting .385 and leading the league. His average had now dipped to .318 in one month, going 1-for-15.
Back home the Sox beat the Indians, 6-4, on July 22nd. Ted and Vic Wertz each knocked out home runs. In a loss the next day, the star again was Tasby, homered and robbed Jim Perry of a home run, with a leaping catch over the Sox bullpen wall.
On July 24th, Monbouquette won his tenth game against the Indians. In his next start he shutout the Tigers, 1-0, allowing only three runners to reach second base, striking out six and walking only one. The Sox only run came when Ted's single in the third inning scored Don Buddin.
The Sox ended July by splitting a doubleheader with the Tigers. Wertz crashed two homers and knocked in six runs and Ted clubbed his 18th home run. Wertz was the major run producer for the Sox this season. Of his last 72 hits, he had knocked in 60 runs.
On August 4th, the Sox recalled Earl Wilson and a rookie catcher named Jim Pagliaroni. Wilson pitched a six-hitter for a 9-1 win in the second game of a doubleheader against Kansas City at Fenway. Monbouquette earned his 12th win in the opener, 5 to 3. Vic Wertz knocked in three runs in each game. His three-run homer won the game for Mombo.
The Sox headed to Detroit and on August 5th on won 4-2. Mike Fornieles retired the last nine batters he faced, for 20 consecutive batters in his last three appearances.
On August 10th, in Cleveland, Ted hit his 512th career homer and later in the same game, hit his 513th, surpassing Mel Ott for third place all-time.
On August 20th, Ted Williams collected his 2000th base on balls, later finishing with his career with 2021, thirty five less than that of Babe Ruth (2056 BB).
Vic Wertz was one the batting shining stars for the Sox this season. On August 25th, when the Sox beat the Indians, 10 to 7, a grandslam pinch-hit homer by Wertz was the actual game-winner. It was his ninth slam lifetime and third of the season, leaving him one shy of the seasonal record. Wertz had knocked in 88 runs in 97 of his hits, knocking in a run every 3.81 AB. He was second in the American League RBI chase.
August 28th was a great day for Mike Fornieles (2.52 ERA). In the second game of a doubleheader with Kansas City, at Fenway Park, he entered the game in the eighth inning with the score tied, 4-4. He shut the A's down for two innings and in the last of the eighth, singled home the winning run for a 5-4 victory.
The Sox walked away with a doubleheader sweep of the Tigers on August 30th. Both games went to extra innings . In the first game, which the Sox won in 15 innings, Pete Runnels doubled home Frank Malzone with the walk-off game winner, 2-1. In the second game, the Sox scored the winning run in the 10th inning on a ground ball, that Tiger shortstop, Chico Fernandez, threw into the Sox dugout, letting the baserunner score from third, for a 5-4 win. Runnels had a fantastic day, also going 9-for-11 and tying Al Smith for the AL batting lead with a .324 BA.
On September 4th, Vic Wertz clubbed his 18th home run, giving him 93 RBIs on 105 hits. At Fenway Park, Wertz had 69 RBIs on only 66 hits. He trailed Roger Maris (96 RBIs) by three RBIs for the A.L. lead.
At Yankee Stadium on September 6th, Pumpsie Green led off the game by slashing what looked like a routine base hit to left, that scooted by Hector Lopez. It caromed around the short left field fence, rolling into left-center field, for an inside-the-park home run. Ted Williams also poked a homer, the 518th of his career and 26th for the season, into the short right field stands.
On September 7th, in Detroit, Ted enjoyed another productive night with two hits. He doubled home two runs for the Sox, in a rally that gave them a 5-4 win. Then, in the next game, he doubled to right in his first at-bat, missing a homer by two feet and then homered deep into the second deck of Tiger Stadium, his next time up. He also walked and hit a line-drive single to right. His 3-for-4 gave the Sox a 6-1 win against Jim Bunning.
Against the Senators, on September 17th, Ted beat them with one swing of his bat. There was a man on base at Griffith Stadium, in the sixth inning, when Ted blasted his 520th homer over the right field wall, giving the Sox a 2-1 win.
In the next game, Willie Tasby hit a homer to tie the score. Then a couple of innings later, Lou Clinton lined a single that scored two runners. It gave Monbouquette his 14th win, a 3-1 decision over the Senators. Runnels went 2-for-4, lifting his league leading batting average, to .321
The Sox returned to Fenway to face the league leaders, the New York Yankees. In the first game on September 23rd, Ted Williams lined a pitch off the wall for a double that game the Sox a 1-0 lead. But the Sox lost 5 to 1. Runnels got one hit.
The second game took extra innings and the Sox lost 6-5 on a home run by Mickey Mantle in the 10th. Ted went 2-for-3, with a pair of singles.
The Yankees clinched the pennant after winning the final game of the series, 4 to 3 on September 25th. Ted knocked out two singles in his first two plate appearances.
As the season drew to a close, everybody was speculating on what Ted's numbers would have been had he not taken five years off for military service.
The Sporting News crowned him as baseball's "Player of the Decade", an obvious lifetime achievement award, because players like Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays and Stan Musial also were playing. He finished the year with a .316 BA, 29 HRs and 72 RBIs.
But the story of the 1960 Boston Red Sox came down to the final at bat of Ted Williams. After a stirring pre-game ceremony on September 28th, in his final at bat in the eighth inning, Ted caught hold of a Jack Fisher fastball and sent it into the Sox bullpen. He crossed the plate and ran directly into the dugout with his head down and didn't acknowledge the fans. They screamed for him to come out and take a bow, but he didn't move.
Then when the inning ended, Mike Higgins made him go out and take his position in left field. As he got there, Carroll Hardy was running right behind him, trotting out to take his place. Ted turned around, saw Hardy, came back and crossed the infield for the final time and then disappeared down the runway to the Sox clubhouse.
The Sox, without Ted, went to New York and lost the final three games of the season. But there was something to be gained - the American League Batting title. In the first game of the series, Pete Runnels had two hits in three trips to have a four-point advantage over Cleveland's Al Smith. In the second game, he had one hit in two official times up and sat out the last game. Pete won the batting title (.320 BA) by five points.
Carl Yastrzemski ended his Minneapolis Miller's season with a .340 BA.
Mike Fornieles had 14 saves and an American League record 70 appearances. Mikeís success in 1960 was recognized when The Sporting News made him the inaugural winner of its "Fireman of the Year" Award for the American League.
On the plus side was Vic Wertz. He had a great season with ten game-winning hits, 19 HRs and 103 RBIs, the fifth time he knocked in 100 RBIs in his career. He started 110 games and went 10-for-18 as a pinch hitter, with three grandslams.
The 1960 Red Sox (65-89) had the most defeats since their 1932 team. They lost seven of their last eight games and finished 32 games behind the Yankees. Their longest winning streak was just five games,. The longest losing streak was ten games. Sox pitching (4.62 ERA), non-supported by various infielders, was their major disappointment.
