Chicago Cubs Hall of Famer Billy Williams will get a statute outside Wrigley Field later this year, in honor of his tremendous accomplishments with the team.

Williams, a Hall of Fame outfielder who once held the National League record with 1,117 consecutive games played, got the news during an annual team gathering Tuesday night.

The life-size statue is to be unveiled Sept. 7 outside Wrigley Field, two seasons after teammate Ernie Banks’ statue was erected near Clark and Addison. The location for Williams’ statute has yet to be determined. CHICAGO SUN-TIMES.

Williams remains with the organization and is surely deserving of the honor.
