R. I. P. Walt "No Neck" Williams
1943 - 2016
Walt Williams was a fan favorite wherever he played -- his enthusiasm for the game, unsurpassed -- and his hustle on the field, non-stop. Walt provided an offensive spark his first year with the Chicago White Sox in 1967. Had manager Eddie Stanky chosen to play"No-Neck" more often (instead of veterans Rocky Colavito and Ken Boyer during August/September of the 1967 American League pennant race) -- the final outcome that memorable season may have been very different.
