Both outstanding, worthy Hall of Famers. However, Williams missed three complete seasons and two others with less than 40 games played due to military service. I give him huge props for being willing to go to war for his country. AND he had 27 more WAR than Yaz despite playing in fewer games. Unfortunately, I missed all of Williams career, but caught all except the first two seasons for Yaz. Such a consummate professional!
Boston was truly blessed to have one alltime great follow another in left field.
