New Boston Red Sox reliever Adam Ottavino believes he wouldn't have a problem facing team legend and Hall of Famer Ted Williams if the two played against each other.
"Oh geez, I don't know," Ottavino told WEEI's "Dale & Keefe" on Friday when asked how he would hold up against Williams. "It's a different era. He played after the Babe so he probably saw a little better pitching than Babe Ruth did. It's hypothetical at this point. I guess it's not worth weighing in. But I feel like I would do just fine."
Williams, who was a 19-time All-Star, finished his career with a .344/.482/.634 slash line, while Ottavino owns a 3.53 ERA with 10.4 K/9 over 10 years in the majors.
