      Williams-----19 yrs, .344 BA, .482 OBP, .634 SLG, 1116 OPS
      DiMaggio----13 yrs, .325 BA, .398 OBP, .579 SLG, 977 OPS

      IMHO, no amount of fielding prowess can make up that kind of difference in
      offensive production, even with adjusting for park factors -- certainly not
      enough to be able to say DiMaggio was the better player "without question."

      Now back to basketball
