    Sad ending for a solid reliever who pitched for my favorite team, the Reds:

    Just FYI, some of us don't hack through those endless general threads, so it's worth posting separately. Even if Williams wasn't a big name, he lasted for a few years with several teams, so he's probably recognizable to more than a few people. Plus, it's a pretty fascinating, albeit sad, story that's worth reading even if his name isn't familiar.

    I absolutely loved the Reds growing up in the '80s. Lived and died with them. Thanks to Marty and Joe I still want to go Krogering.

    Frank Williams was awesome for the Reds a couple years in the late '80s. I remember owning Statis-Pro Baseball 1988. Frank was a 2-8 as a reliever. Loved funneling it into that bullpen with him and Rob Dibble and John Franco. Worked so well for the Reds, a couple years later they rode it to the World Series (albeit without Williams and Franco).
