Williams jumped back into the gameas manager of the hapless Washington Senatorsafter an eight-year absence. The story, "Teaching Them Ted's Way," mentioned the awed stares he received on the field as well as his penchant for asking innumerable questions in his quest to instruct and learn. In his first game, the Senators were no-hit for 8 2/3 innings (though they managed to score five runs thanks to 11 walks). By season's end Williams had directed the franchise to its best record (86-76) and highest single-season attendance (918,106).
