About this pro

I'm a former MLB draftee and played minor league Baseball for several years. I've been Coaching for over 40 years and ran a Baseball Academy for 7 years. I'm currently the President of the of Historic Hamtramck Stadium. 

I thoroughly enjoy teaching the basic fundamentals of Baseball.  There is no greater gratification than seeing a pupil or player execute the proper mechanics during a highly competitive game. Typically, you start to see their confidence level begin to increase. After that a player will desire to work even harder to reduce their weaknesses and sharpen their skills.

    Coach Wilson cared about the kids as if they were his own. He taught them from a place of love and respect and they returned it to him. He was very influential to my son and I appreciate him greatly.

    Coach Wilson was an excellent coach. He took his time with each of the players. He was very knowledgeable when it came to baseball.

  • Annette Abouljoud

    Coach Wilson is a talented and experienced baseball player and coach. He trained my son for over 2 years and improved his batting skills immensely. He went from the bottom of the line up to the top. We loved working with Coach Wilson and would highly recommend him.

In the past month, 3 players from our Academy committed to play College Baseball at the University of Michigan. All 3 entered our academy before the age of 9.
