RIP - Walt Williams

1960s/70s White Sox outfielder Walt Williams passed away on January 23, 2016 at age 72.

Nicknamed "No Neck", Williams debuted with 10 games in early 1964 for the Houston Colt .45s, then passed through the Cardinals' organization before making the majors for good in 1967.

He was a starting outfielder for the ChiSox from 1967-1972, before finishing up his career with the Indians and Yankees from 1973-75.

After his release from the Yankees in early 1976, he played a few seasons in Japan.
