T. J. (Tyler) Williams is one of several family members who have baseball in their blood. Tyler is a 24-year-old infielder in the Chicago White Sox organization, where his father Kenny is currently an executive vice president and former major league player for six seasons during 1986 to 1991.
T. J. has three brothers who have a connection to professional baseball. Brother Dedrick played college baseball at Wichita State University and was formerly a scout for the White Sox. Brother Kenny Jr. is currently a scout in the Diamondbacks organization, while brother Kyle was drafted by the White Sox, but chose to play in the NFL instead.
T. J. says his father has prepared him well for the ups and downs of professional baseball, as he tries to make the most of his opportunity to advance through the minors.
