Wilson's career was almost ended as a rookie when a Hank Greenberg
line drive fractured
his skull and left him unconscious. He recovered to become a capable starter for
a handful of teams, winning in double figures four times but leading the AL with
18 losses for Baltimore in 1955. With the Braves on June 12, 1954 he pitched a no-hitter,
defeating Robin Roberts
and the Phillies 2-0.
