    Ted Williams never adapted to the shift...he was a dead-pull hitter his entire career. Of his 521 home runs, he hit exactly one to left field.

    He only hit .344 with the best OBP ever (a staggering .482).

    If you can’t beat the shift, you should be replaced by someone who can

    Obviously, Williams beat it or wouldn’t have such a high OBP
