682nd Place - Frank Williams
This isn't your typical pitcher pose, I'm thinking Frank is about to catch the ball after it was thrown around the horn?
Frank Williams had, from what I can tell, a tragically short career. Over six seasons he was quite effective out of the bullpen. He played for the Giants, Reds, and Tigers. But it appears a car accident ruined his career.
In the subsequent years, Frank left his family and became a homeless alcoholic. It appears that lifestyle contributed to his death from a heart attack and ensuing coma. He started life as an orphan growing up in foster homes.
This wasn't a fun one to write. Rest in peace, Frank.
