The book, “Frozen,” alleges that Ted Williams frozen head, which had saved in the hopes that it could one day be revived, was disfigured and used for batting practice.
Larry Johnson, who wrote the new book, was a former exec at the Alcor Life Extension Foundation in Scottsdale, Arizona. He secretly compiled the book after wearing a wire during his last three months working at the company and stealing confidential paperwork from the facility.
Ted Williams, the last hitter in Major League Baseball to his .400 during a single season, died back in 2002 at the age of 83. His son, John Henry Williams, decided to have his father’s body frozen.
