682nd Place - Frank Williams

Card #773

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.
