Former Blue Jays Manager Jimy Williams Is Gone At 80

He was behind the bench for some frustrating Blue Jays years and now he's gone home.

Former Toronto manager Jimy (always one "m!") Williams has passed away. He was the Jays' manager from 1986-89, including that famous year when Toronto won 96 games, only to lose seven in a row in a disastrous race with the Tigers, who eventually won the division. (I can still remember that awful year!)

He was also a frequent presence on radio, being interviewed on most pre-games whenever the team played.

Williams, a veteran baseball man who played, coached and managed in the Big Leagues, was 80 years old.
