Williams earned MVP votes in every season of his career except for 1952 – when he appeared in only six games due to his service as a Marine aviator. In total, Williams lost almost five complete seasons while he served his country in World War II and the Korean War.
Williams was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1966.
