Billy Williams An Autograph Crowd Pleaser

It’s been over 30 years since Billy Williams played in a Major League game, but he’s still one of the most popular Cubs of all-time. He was the latest guest at one Chicago area shop’s ongoing signing sessions.

Plenty of people in Chicago know there’s a town in Alabama called Whistler. At least if they’re Cubs fans, they do.

It’s the hometown of #26, the sweet-swinging outfielder who did all he could to try and get the North Siders to the playoffs in his day. Billy Williams stopped by Jim & Steve’s in Waukegan, Illinois to sign autographs over the weekend and lines were long.
