Williams, who also serves as the Redbirds Vice President of Community Relations, is in his eighth season as a member of the broadcast crew.
A native Memphian, Williams was the Los Angeles Dodgers' 13th pick in the 1982 draft and went on that summer to become the MVP of the Lethbridge (Alberta) Dodgers with a .300 batting average.
He made his Major League debut on Sept. 2, 1985, with the Dodgers. He was the Dodgers Rookie of the Year in 1986, when he appeared in 128 games and hit .277, numbers that landed him a spot on the National League's All-Rookie Team.
After his playing career ended, Williams returned to Memphis and became a teacher and vice-principal at Ridgeway Middle High School in the Memphis City School system.
Williams, his wife Allyson, and children Lesly, Reginald and Lane Allen, live in Collierville, TN.
