He’s got more rings than Frodo and Don Mattingly combined, and still ranks high on various all-time franchise stat lists which — given the team’s history — is saying a lot.
Keeping that in mind, former New York Yankees outfielder Bernie Williams never has to worry about winning over fans. Still, he concedes he does, in his post-Bombers career.
“It never gets old. (People) coming to a show thinking it’s just a baseball player playing music is good for me. It means they haven’t heard my music, and I’m always trying to get new fans,” he said.
Williams has gone on to become a celebrated musician since leaving the pinstripes in 2006. He tours regularly around the world, has released two albums, and continues to elevate himself in the music scene.
