Billy Williams Booking Agent Details

Billy Williams is a former MLB outfielder who played from 1959-1976, primarily with the Chicago Cubs (1959-1974) but also at the end of his career with the Oakland Athletics (1975-1976). In 1987, Williams became a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame while his jersey #26 was retired by the Cubs that same year. In 1999, Williams was named to the Cubs All-Century team and was a finalist for the MLB All-Century team. He maintained a lifetime batting average of .290, collecting 2,711 hits, 1,475 RBI and 426 home runs in total for his career. Williams was six times named an All Star in 1962, 1964, 1965, 1968, 1972 and 1973. In 2010, the Cubs unveiled a statue of Williams at Wrigley Field.

Chicago struggled as a franchise during Williams’ time with the club and in the 16 years he spent with the Cubs, the team never made the postseason. However, that didn’t stop Williams from earning accolades and recording stellar campaigns. He was named Rookie of the Year in 1961 after hitting .278 with 25 homers and 86 RBI in his first full season and Williams earned MVP votes over the course of eight different seasons with Chicago. In 1970, Williams set career-highs in hits (205), home runs (42), runs (137) and RBI (129). He placed second that season in the NL MVP voting after amassing a batting average of .322. Williams in 1972 had a similarly dominant season, leading MLB with a .333 batting average while hitting 37 home runs with 122 RBI and, again, placing second in the NL MVP voting.
