Mookie Wilson Booking Agency Profile

Call PFP Sports Talent Agency at 1.800.966.1380 if you would like to contact a Mookie Wilson booking agent for a speaking engagement, personal appearance, product endorsement or corporate event. William "Mookie" Wilson is an American former Major League Baseball center fielder and current coach for the New York Mets. He played 12 years in baseball for the New York Mets (1980–89) and Toronto Blue Jays (1989–91). He was a switch hitter, known for his impressive speed and positive attitude. Fans would frequently chant "Mooooo-kie" in appreciation of him. He was named New York Mets first base coach for the 2011 season.

In twelve seasons, Wilson was a .274 hitter with 67 home runs, 438 RBI, and 327 stolen bases in 1403 games. Wilson held the Mets record for career stolen bases (281) and career triples (62) until José Reyes broke both marks during the 2008 season.

Wilson is the batter who, in Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, avoided being hit by a wild pitch, allowing the tying run to score in the bottom of the 10th. His ground ball later in the same at bat went through the legs of Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner, allowing the winning run to score. The infamous "Buckner play", blamed on the first baseman, was a result of Wilson's smart at-bat, and ability to get the ball in play. The Mets went on to win that 1986 World Series. The ball that rolled through Buckner's legs is now housed in the Seth Swirsky baseball collection.

When the Mets decided to rebuild, Wilson requested a trade. The Mets accommodated him by trading him to the Blue Jays in exchange for Jeff Musselman and Mike Brady on August 1, 1989.

Wilson was inducted into the New York Mets Hall of Fame in 1996.

In 1996, Wilson earned a bachelor's degree from Mercy College in New York.

In 2005, Wilson managed the single A team Brooklyn Cyclones. Previously, he managed the Rookie League Kingsport Mets team and was a coach for the New York Mets from 1997 to 2002.

Wilson and Buckner have become business partners to some extent, attending autograph shows together and signing copies of a photo of the 1986 play that linked the two players.

Wilson is both the stepfather and uncle of former major league outfielder Preston Wilson, whom he introduced to baseball.

In 1999, Wilson obtained a Commercial driver's license and began hauling freight in the offseason, a job he stated his intention to keep if and when he left professional baseball.

Wilson has been a resident of Lakewood Township, New Jersey.
