Ted Williams of the Boston Red Sox becomes baseball’s final .400 hitter finishing the season with a .406 average.  Williams began the day with a .39955 average, which would have rounded up to .400.  He was given the chance to rest in the season-ending doubleheader to preserve the .400 average, but opted to play in both games against the Philadelphia Athletics, and went 6-for-8, raising his average to .406.
