"I had to laugh when a producer from the MLB Network called to ask me to do an interview," says Williams (the magician, not the ball player), "Mitch (the ball player, not the magician), known to his fans as 'Wild Thing', was a lot of fun to chat with, and he joked that he was an 'illusionist' who could make leads disappear real quick."
Though he doesn't play baseball, Williams is by all accounts highly talented off the field. He's a full time professional magician and speaker who has performed in Los Angeles, New York, Las Vegas, and Lake Tahoe, as well as in Japan, Canada and Europe. He's been recognized by his peers internationally as an expert at his particular style of magic. He also does inspirational speaking programs in which he uses his magic to illustrate main points, to educate, and inspire. His corporate clients include Hallmark Cards, Merrill Lynch, Kraft Foods, Caterpillar, and Nissan Motors of Japan.
