Biographical Information[edit]

Dib Williams came up as a rookie on the 1930 World Series winning 1930 Athletics. He played for the 1931 pennant-winners as well, and spent most of his major league career with the A's.

He split his time between second base and shortstop primarily, moving back and forth between the positions over the years. At the end of his major league career, after being traded to the Boston Red Sox in 1935, he was used a lot at third base as well.

Williams was still quite young when he left the majors, and spent more than a decade after that in the minors. His longest single stint was from 1937 to 1940 with Sacramento. After a break from 1943-45, he came back to play some more and hit .327 in his last year of professional ball with the Borger Gassers.

Williams was player-manager for the Decatur Commodores in 1941. After his playing career, he managed for three seasons. In 1946 and 1947, he managed the New York Yankees' Augusta Tigers affiliate in the Sally League. Then in 1948, he managed the Lancaster (PA) Red Roses in the Interstate League, a class B affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.
