Bernie Williams Booking Agency Profile

Bernie Williams is a retired baseball player who spent his entire career with the New York Yankees and, in so doing, became one of the most popular Yankees of his era.

Williams signed a professional contract with the New York Yankees organization in 1985. Although viewed as a great prospect by Yankee management, his rise to the Majors was delayed by the solid outfield that the team had developed in the early 1990s.

Nevertheless, Williams managed to break into the majors in 1991 to replace the injured Roberto Kelly for the second half of that season. He became the regular Yankees center fielder by 1993. Throughout the early 1990s, he hit in the middle of the order as management tried to figure out where he best fit - a speedy base runner or a power hitter.

1995 was a breakout season for Williams. He hit 18 home runs and led the team in runs, hits, total bases and stolen bases. Williams continued his hot hitting into the postseason, leading the Yankees with a .429 batting average in the ALDS against Seattle.

After continuing to improve in 1996, Williams again showcased his skills to the baseball world in the postseason. He batted .467 in the ALDS against Texas and played a sparkling center field. He picked up where he left off in the ALCS against Baltimore, belting an 11th-inning walk-off homer in Game 1. Finishing the ALCS with a .474 average and two homers, he was named the ALCS MVP. Williams collected just four hits in the 1996 World Series but his four RBI’s led the Yankees and a clutch homer in the eighth inning of Game 3 helped the Yankees capture their first championship since 1978.

During the 1998 season, in which the Yankees went 114-48 to set a then-American League regular season record for most wins in a season, Williams finished with a .339 average, becoming the first player to win a batting title, Gold Glove award and World Series ring in the same year.

On July 26, 2006, Williams got his 2,300th career hit, becoming the 11th active player in the Majors with 2,300 or more career hits.

On September 21, 2008, Williams made his first return to Yankee Stadium since 2006 for the ceremonies preceding the final game at the stadium. He was the last former player to be introduced and received a standing ovation that lasted amost two minutes.

In addition to his accolades on the baseball field, Williams is also a critically-acclaimed musician. As a classically trained guitarist, playing and composing music is his first true passion with influences that include jazz, classical, pop, Brazilian and Latin sounds.

Williams signed with Paul McCartney's publishing company, MPL Communications, and his major label debut, The Journey Within, was released on June 22, 2003. In addition to playing lead and rhythm guitar, Williams composed seven songs for the album. Williams’ second major album, Moving Forward, was released in 2009.

As of Spring of 2010 Williams was participating in the World Rhythms Tour with Basia. On July 18, 2010 he performed at the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games opening ceremony.

Bernie married wife Waleska on February 23, 1990. They have 3 children; Bernie Jr., Beatriz, and Bianca.
