Hall of Fame manager Dick Williams, who led the Oakland A's to two consecutive World Series titles, has died in Las Vegas.

Williams' friend, Bob Blum, said Williams died Thursday at his home. He was 82.

Williams managed the Boston Red Sox, Oakland A's, California Angels, Montreal Expos, San Diego Padres and Seattle Mariners during a 21-year career.

He was the second manager to win pennants with three different clubs.

Williams won World Series titles with the A's in 1972 and 1973, and an American League pennant with the Red Sox in 1967. He won a National League pennant with the Padres in 1984.
