Ron Williamson was a promising baseball athlete from a small town called Ada in Oklahoma. He experienced great success throughout high school in baseball and looked forward to a career in the major leagues. He dreamed of becoming the next Micky Mantle – the famous Oklahoman who played for the New York Yankees. But Ron’s life went off the rails. He got into heavy drinking and eventually squandered his opportunity to play professional. He bounced around different minor league teams for several years. Eventually he returned home. And he had occasional run-ins with the law for drunk driving.
