Before the Draft, Red Sox No. 1 pick Triston Casas said he would've loved to have lunch with Ted Williams

When the Red Sox selected high school infielder Triston Casas with the 26th overall pick in Monday's 2018 MLB Draft, they likely visualized a future All-Star with 30-plus home run power. The Red Sox have had a lot of smooth left-handed swings in their franchise history, and Casas will look to become the next one.
Of course, the most well-known left-handed stroke in Red Sox history belongs to a certain Hall of Famer by the name of Ted Williams. And even before being selected by the Red Sox, Casas seemed well aware of this. There's no one in history he would rather have lunch with than Teddy Ballgame.
