My dad and I just went to the Father's Day Classic and got a kick out of Dick Williams making the record books for managing both teams. He was always smiling, looked great. We were shocked to hear he is gone just weeks later. Thanks for all you did, as someone else pointed out, he gave the Red Sox organization the kick that led eventually to Theo and the winning years. Rest in peace, and our best to the family. From the Quadros family in New Bedford, Mass. and Worcester, Mass.

It's appropriate that, in his obituary picture, Dick is wearing a Red Sox cap. While, if success is defined as World Series won, he may have been more successful at Oakland, he holds a very special place in the hearts of all Boston fans. 1967 was an extraordinary year for the Sox and Dick Williams was a big part of that. Rest in Peace.

Dick was tough, but fair! He ruled the club-house, but some players cried when they didn't get their way. Wish he could have stayed in Boston.

Rick and other family members, your in our thoughts at this time.
I always enjoyed chating baseball with your Dad. We need more hard nose, no nonsense managers like him in game today. Was glad that he finaly got his due when elected into Hall of Fame.
God Bless.

My husband brought me to the Baseball Hall of Fame few yrs ago for the first time. One of my favorite highlights was listening to Dick Williams and the funny stories he had. We go to the HOF every year now and now we will definitely miss an icon. You managed my and my husbands favorite teams, Boston Red Sox and the A's. You had a personality that was larger than life and we will all miss you. Thanks for the memories!

Personally, I was there at Fenway on Oct. 1st, 1967, a magical moment last will live forever in my heart and mind. I was just 16 but it seemed like only yesterday. I will never forget the 5th inning when Jim Lonborg laid down the surprise bunt that started it all. The ballpark simply exploded! Then single after single. Dick Williams was the architect of the 'rebirth' of Red Sox baseball. Without him, this team would not have had the success its had these past 44 years. God bless you Dick Williams and Thank You for all the precious memories!

You out foxed Johnny Bench in that series against the Reds. Just one memory of many you gave to us fans of the game. You were one smart BB man. Intentional walk J.B.?LOL
