Williams Brothers Follow in Father’s Managerial Footsteps

Brady and Shawn Williams are currently managing in the minor leagues, after brief careers as players.  They are the sons of Jimy Williams, who had a twelve-year career as the manager of the Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, and Houston Astros.
