BOSTON (AP) - A Medford man who claims he owns the rights to a photo of former Boston Red Sox star Ted Williams is suing an artist who used the image to paint Williams as he appeared in 1939.

The photo in question shows Williams at the age of 21 with teammate Bobby Doerr. Chase’s suit says he owns all rights to the image, which was sold to him by another man who bought it from the original photographer.
