Jeff Williams has pitched for the Australian national team in the Olympics twice and has appeared in two Japan Series for the Hanshin Tigers. Williams struck out 11 in 8 1/3 innings in the 1997 Intercontinental Cup and went 1-1 but his 9.72 ERA led Australia. He was horrendous in the semifinals against Japan but Australia bounced back to win Bronze, its first Medal ever in a worldwide international event. In 2007, Williams had 45 consecutive scoreless games from May 3rd to September 18th, with his ERA falling to 0.15 by the end of that amazing stretch. Williams slumped after that to finish with a 0.96 ERA and 1-2 record in 60 outings as a set-up man for Kyuji Fujikawa.
