Ted Williams victimized Yankees to hit .406 in 1941.

In 1941 Ted Williams went 185 for 456: batting average (BA) .405701754386.

His highest BA was against the Yankees: 32 for 68: (BA) .470588235294.

If the Yankees had held Williams to three fewer hits: 29 for 68 (BA) .426470588235, it would have been slightly higher than Williams against the St. Louis Browns: .426229508197 and second only to Williams against the Philadelphia Athletics .444.

Without those three hits Williams would have been 182 for 456: BA .399122807018.
