Captain America.

It’s a nickname that will stick if Luke Williams sticks around the majors. Zach Eflin called him that in his postgame news conference, referring to Williams to this due to his involvement with Team USA and their Olympic bid. If ever Williams was feeling bad about not being able to go to Tokyo and participate, this should end that feeling.
