Cy Williams (December 21, 1887 - April 23, 1974) was a Major League Baseball player for the Chicago Cubs (1912-17) and Philadelphia Phillies (1918-30).
Born in Wadena, Indiana, Williams attended Notre Dame where he studied architecture and played football with the legendary Knute Rockne. His hitting prowess caught the attention of the Chicago Cubs who purchased his contract after he graduated from college. From 1915-1927 he was a consistent power hitting center fielder, leading the National League in home runs four times during his career. He was the first NL player to hit 200 career home runs - he finished his career with 251 of them.
He hit for the cycle on August 5, 1927.
After retirement he worked as an architect in his hometown of Eagle River, Wisconsin. He died there age 86 in 1974.
