Williams, who is the current third base coach for the San Diego Padres, made his MLB debut in 1987. The to-be-divorced couple married in 2003 and have one daughter together. Their daughter is an adult so there will be no discussion of child support, per TMZ Sports.
Williams was married twice before Monroe, according to the New York Post.
Williams had three World Series appearances with three separate teams, according to the Baseball Almanac. He lost with the Giants in 1989 and Indians in 1997, but won with the Diamondbacks in 2001. He was a five-time all-star and hit 378 home runs during his career. (RELATED: Alex Rodriguez Snitched On Other MLB Superstars Who Were Using Steroids, Bombshell Documents Show: REPORT)
