Bernie Williams winner of four World Series rings just may now add a Latin Grammy to his trophy case.

Today, the ex-New York Yankee has been nominated for a Latin Grammy Award, three years removed from his major league baseball career.

Williams’s second album, “Moving Forward,” was nominated by his peers for “Best Instrumental Album.” Williams, who attended the Latin Grammy Awards as a fan last year, said he was “elated” to learn that he would return to the event as a nominee.

“I don’t have many words right now that can explain how excited and grateful I am about this nomination,” Williams said in a statement. “When I stopped playing baseball, I knew that I would become more dedicated to my music. Just to have the chance to sign with Reform Records and create this CD was a tremendous opportunity. Now, to already have my first Latin Grammy nomination from my fellow musicians is beyond anything I could have dreamed.”
