I do not have any personal stories to share about Jimy “One M” Williams, who died in late January at 80. The California native was briefly a major leaguer but he had a much more robust career as the Toronto Blue Jays third base coach and eventual manger. He was later American League Manager of the Year with the Boston Red Sox.
Williams led the Jays through some exciting seasons from 1986 to 1989 before Cito Gaston took them to two World Series championships in the early ’90s.
One guy who does have a story to share is Kevin Vahey. The Boston-based sports producer and cameraman has kindly shared TV sports jaw-droppers with brioux.tv on several earlier occasions. Here is Vahey on Jimy Williams:
