1931 - 1979
William was a child once, too! He was listening to the radio as Joe DiMaggio, pro football player, has just made an amazing catch. And THAT inspired him to play baseball. He practiced the stance, the run and of course the hit.
Will was asked to play baseball 15, when he went to Fairfield High School, which would make you a pretty young baseball player. Because of everything he learned, he became a natural. He got the stance right, the run right, and of course the hit right. Like lots people do, he also got drafted to the military. 2 years later, he came back, and he STILL played! Yes!
Will made an AMAZING catch! Watch this video to learn more about it!
