2021 Chachi #51 - Walk-Off HR HL

Not knowing much about Luke Williams, I was immediately impressed by him when he bunted (on his own) down the third base line on the very first pitch he saw in the big leagues because he noticed the third baseman playing back.  In his first start on June 9th, he hit the game-winning home run to give the Phillies a dramatic 2-1 win, becoming the first Phillies player to hit a walk-off home run in his first start.

Williams' first baseball card appearance came in the 2015 Bowman Draft set.  He's appeared in seven minor league team sets since then, including the recently released 2021 IronPigs team set.
