What if Ted Williams was a free agent?

Ted Williams was once asked by a reporter where he’d play if he was a free agent and could sign with any team.  You get a few guesses at which team it was before you click through.

OK, did you click though? He only gives some basic reasoning, but I could totally see that.  At the time — 1940 — it probably seemed like a huge opportunity to go to that particular team. Kind of a sleeping giant.
