Red Wilson 1951-1960 Major Leaguer
Red Wilson played for the White Sox, Indians, and mostly the Tigers during his career. He also played football and baseball for the University of Wisconsin Badgers (look up his amazing stats and accomplishments for those teams!).
I asked Red if he had any sports stories relating to Kentucky. He let me know that he really didn't, though he was the catcher for Jim Bunning's no-hit game against the Red Sox in 1958! That definitely counts as a Kentucky story!
Red said that his favorite teams are the Tigers and the Brewers. His favorite player right now is Ryan Braun. His all time favorite is Stan Musial.
