Ted Williams Recovering

10/03/1997 at 12:00 AM EDT

Baseball hero Ted Williams, 82, who is the game's last .400 hitter, underwent open heart surgery on Monday in a New York hospital and is said to be in good condition, his son, John Henry Williams, told the Boston Globe. "Dad is good," he said. The surgery on the Hall of Famer was meant to repair or replace a heart valve. Williams batted .406 in 1941, a feat no other player has even approached ever since.
