WILLIAMS DID GUESS ALOT ,HE OFTEN GUESSED SLIDER SINCE HE GOT SO MANY AND HE FELT HE COULD ADJUST FAST OR CURVE FROM THERE.HE HAD GREAT EYESIGHT THOUGH TO PICKUP THE BALL EARLIER OUT OF THE HAND WHICH LED TO HIS CONSISTENT DECISIONS.BOGGS ON THE OTHER HAND LOOKED FOR PITCHES HE COULD HIT IN CERTAIN AREAS OF THE FIELD, THEN READ SPIN TO SEE WHAT MOVEMENT IT WOULD HAVE.GREAT VISION AND EARLY RECOGNITION WAS COMMON TO BOTH HITTERS.
