"The guy I envy more than anyone else I've seen or read about is Zane Grey. I've got a collection of all his books on fishing. I'd want to do just what Zane Grey did. He bought himself a big three-masted schooner and he roamed the world. He fished all the great fishing spots in the world.
"I used to be dreaming about someday being way far away where I'd have the only fishing waters around. If I had the money and facilities to do it I'd certainly roam the world."
Williams stopped. He seemed enchanted at the vastness of his dream.

"You're right," Ted Williams said, all defenses down. "I've been lucky. I've always been a lucky hitter—with bad hops and everything."
