Where Have All the Willies Gone?

As far as I can tell there's only one player currently in the major leagues with the name, Willie --- Willie Bloomquist of the Seattle Mariners.  Back in the day there were more, including some of the all-time greats.  Here are eight from my collection:



  1. I also have cards for the first 5 Willies above, plus Willie Smith (Indians & Cubs in mid-1960s) and Willie Montanez (Phillies and other teams in the 1970s).

    There's also Willie Mays Aikens, from the Royals.

  2. The most recent Willie I can think of - other than Willie Bloomquist - is former Orioles & White Sox outfielder Willie Harris.

    1. Hey Joe,
      Can't find an e-mail for you. Hoping you'll see this. I've been commenting on your blog but the comments don't show up. Can you see them? Is this another Wordpress glitch?

  3. This is as burning a question as Where are all the Dicks. Perhaps I should reword that?
