    Braves and Orioles catcher in the 1970s. Dead at age 64 from leukemia:


    One of the better power-hitting catchers of his day, just a tic below Bench and Fisk. Also part of one of the biggest trades of the early 70s, the deal that sent Davey Johnson to Atlanta.

    RIP. I thought Willie Montanez should've been Rookie of the Year but Williams was solid.
