On Sunday, the Milwaukee Brewers secured their second NL Central title in four years. The team quickly took to celebrating their success off the pitch and Williams had reportedly drunk heavily before the incident.
“I’m pretty upset with myself,” said Williams in a report by CNN.
“There’s no one to blame but me. I feel like I’ve let my team down, our coaching staff, our fans, everyone. I know how important of a role I play on this team and a lot of people count on me.”
Williams won the National League Rookie of the Year award in 2020 and this season has posted a 2.50 ERA with 87 strikeouts in 54 innings.
