"Doug Wilson is becoming one of the better baseball biographers of this era" Gregg's Baseball Bookcase, November 5, 2015
Doug Wilson is an ophthalmologist who grew up memorizing the backs of baseball cards and dreaming of the big leagues. He apparently never got over the fact that no major league team even remotely considered taking a 5-9, 150 pound, slow, myopic, weak-armed, .296-hitting, division II college outfielder in the 1983 draft.
A member of the Society for American Baseball Research, he has found peace with the game by writing baseball books.
He has interviewed over 100 former major league players for his books, has been interviewed on NPR and has spoken at the Louisville Slugger Museum in Louisville, Kentucky and the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, New York.
