Biography | show moreshow less
Frederick "Cy" Williams (1887-1974) was an American professional baseball player. He played in Major League Baseball as an outfielder for the Chicago Cubs (1912-1917) and Philadelphia Phillies (1918-1930). Williams attended Notre Dame where he studied architecture and played football with Knute Rockne. His hitting prowess caught the attention of the Chicago Cubs, who purchased his contract after he graduated from college. Williams made his major league debut with the Cubs on July 18, 1912 at the age of 24. As Major League Baseball emerged from the dead ball era, Williams became one of the most prominent home run hitters in the National League. He is the Phillies' all-time leader in extra-innings grand slams with two and holds the major league record for being the oldest player ever to win a home run title, hitting 30 home runs to win the National League home run title in 1927 at 39 years of age. Williams hit for the cycle on August 5, 1927. Af
