Notes On The Great Player, Billy Williams

September 18, 2018

While looking over notes from the 1975 baseball season, the fact Billy Williams finally made post-season play came back to mind.

He came to the Oakland A’s in 1975 after they had won 3 straight World Series titles.

In ’75 they won a 5th straight division title but lost in 3 straight games to the Boston Red Sox in the American League Championship Series.

A 108 win Cincinnati Reds team won a great W.S. from the Red Sox.

Williams was best known as a Chicago Cubs outfielder and hit 426 home runs.

Billy is a Hall of Fame player and I remember his/my great “2 column” in Strat-O- Matic Baseball.

As with Mark Twain, Billy Williams’ death has been greatly exaggerated as he is alive and certainly did not die in 1973.
