The fiery Williams didn't stop there, reportedly asking members of the Sox public relations staff to remove all pictures of Thomas in the facility, as well as saying if the organization did eventually put up a statue of Thomas "it should have a skirt on it."
Here you have two different accounts, neither of which come directly from the source, both trying to paint opposite parties as the villain.
