Matt Williams went to Carson High School in Carson City, Nevada and played both baseball and American Football for the Senators. The New York Mets initially selected him, but he never made an appearance for them. Instead, Williams decided to accept a baseball scholarship from the University of Nevada, and deferred his debut into the MLB.

The San Francisco Giants chose Williams as the 3rd pick in the 1986 MLB Draft, and he primarily played as a short stop in his rookie season, but in the next few years Matt would play both third base and short stop. However, his luck changed in 1990 when he became the starting third baseman, and immediately became one of the best players in the league. That season, Williams was the NL RBI leader with 122, won the Silver Slugger Award, and earned his first invitation to the All-Star game. The following year, Matt received his first Golden Glove Award, an achievement that he would repeat in 1993, 1994, and 1997.

The period between 1994 and 1996 was individually the most successful for Williams, as he appeared in three consecutive All-Star events and was the NL home run leader in 1994. After a season with the Cleveland Indians in 1997, Williams joined the Arizona Diamonds and became one of the leaders of the team that won the 2001 World Series after defeating the New York Yankees in seven games. Matt recorded a home run in Game 2 and played a big part for the rest of the series.

Williams decided to retire in 2003, and six years after leaving baseball, he got the job as the Diamondbacks’ first base coach in November 2009. In the 2011 season though, he moved to third base coach, then in October 2013, Williams was hired as the new team manager of the Washington Nationals. Matt was excellent in his first season as a manager, winning the National League Manager of the Year award after leading the Nationals to the 2014 National League Division Series, where they lost to the San Francisco Giants, Matt’s former team. Washington was considered as one of the favorites for the World Series in 2015, but they didn’t reach the playoffs and Williams had to go as a result.

Regarding his personal life, Matt Williams was married to Tracie who left him for another along with their three children. From 1999 to 2002, Williams was married to actress Michelle Johnson, while since 2003, he has been married to TV hostess Erika Monroe – they have one child together, and currently live in Paradise Valley, Arizona.
