Williams broke out in 1990 when he had 33 Home Runs, a league-leading 122 Runs Batted In, and he went to his first All-Star Game. 1990 also began a 10-year streak of at least 20 Home Runs, and he won the Home Run Title in 1994, which also saw him start a three-year run of All-Star Game appearances. In 1991, 1993, 1994, and 1997 Williams won both the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger, the latter year occurring in his only season with Cleveland.
Williams later signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks for their inaugural season in 1998, where he brought a veteran presence to the expansion team. It led to Williams winning his only World Series Ring when the D-Backs won it all in 2001. He retired in 2003 with 378 Home Runs and 1,878 Hits
Williams would later win the Manager of the Year in 2014 when he took the Washington Nationals to the playoffs.
