Dick Williams is in the Hall of Fame

New, comments

The manager that first brought our favorite team to the World Series is now immortal. Dick Williams is in the Hall of Fame. Padres fans will always remember him as the man who took us to the World Series only to get screwed over by ownership a year later. During the lean years, I always thought that the new ownership group (whatever it happened to be at the time) should try to bring Dick Williams back. Granted, I was only 9 at the time, but I never understood why Dick Williams didn't finish his career a Padre. Actually... I'm 31 now and I still can't quite figure it out.

Congratulations Dick Williams! Another Padre in the Hall!
