Ted Williams

Disturbing reports out of Arizona that the frozen head of "Splendid Splinter" Ted Williams may have been abused at the cryogenic facility wherein it resides.

Here is an excerpt from the upcoming expose Frozen: A True Story by Larry Johnson...

Johnson writes that the head was balanced on an empty can of Bumble Bee tuna to keep it from sticking to the bottom of its case.

Johnson describes watching as another Alcor employee removed Williams’ head from the freezer with a stick, and tried to dislodge the tuna can by swinging at it with a monkey wrench.

The technician, no .406 hitter like the baseball legend, missed the can with several swings of the wrench and smacked Williams’ head directly, spraying “tiny pieces of frozen head” around the room.
