Example text

He had been playing in the minor leagues for several years, and he had been so close to making it to the majors that he was simply frustrated. Minor leaguers can have long careers without ever going up to the big leagues, even for a cup of coffee (as a brief major-league stint is known), and the years of perpetual disappointment take their toll. Most people close to the couple believe it is no accident that, after marrying Waleska, Bernie had more confidence in himself. Those close to Williams also know that his mother, Rufina, would have told him that he could not quit now.

He enjoyed his bachelor life, but he would soon make a lifechanging decision. Two years before, Williams met a wonderful 29 30 bernie williams young woman named Waleska while taking first-year biology at the University of Puerto Rico. She was intelligent and beautiful. He may have felt that his bachelor days were fun, but he could see how a deeper companionship would make him happier over the long run. On February 23, 1990, he and Waleska married in Puerto Rico and moved to the village of Colonie to begin the 1990 season with the Albany-Colonie Yankees.

He also had 7 home runs and 45 runs batted in, both personal bests. Williams was starting to get power. He had gained 20 pounds (9 kilograms) of muscle from ages 17 to 20, and he was now looking like a major leaguer. His growth spurt ended, and his extraordinary physical coordination became even more obvious. His speed had always been a part of his game; he stole 29 bases for the Cannons, a team high. In November 1988, the Yankees put Williams on their 40-man roster, meaning no other team could try to sign him.
