How would you like to be a 36 year old player that has been in the minors since 1952 only to finally make your debut in 1969? Billy had spent 17 seasons in the minors only to see four games in the majors during August of 1969 and nothing more. He never got a hit in 12 plate appearances either. You would wish for a little better for a guy that waited that long.

Since you were able to get the back story on Seattle's Billy, hopefully you didn't confuse him with a more famous Billy Williams of the 60's seen here.
