While the best years were well behind him by the time Matt Williams arrived in Arizona, Matt Williams proved to be very popular among the Diamondbacks fans as one of the original members of the team.

This is not to say that Williams still did not have some great moments left in him.  In 1999, Williams would blast 35 Home Runs, 142 Runs Batted In (a career high) with a .303 Batting Average, which was enough for him to finish third in National League MVP voting.  Williams would later help Arizona win the 2001 World Series.
