Nigel Wilson- Worst Player Ever


Nigel Wilson played parts of 3 seasons in the majors (1993- Florida Marlins, 1995- Cincinnati Reds, and 1996- Cleveland Indians). During that time he amassed what quite possibly be the most horrific career line in modern day history with a .086 batting average and .368 OPS. That's so shitty that most NL pitchers post better stats than that. In 35 at bats, he managed to squeak out only 3 hits, but he did whiff 21 times (that's 60%). Originally signed as an ameteur free agent in 1987 by the Toronto Blue Jays, Nigel was the Marlins 1st pick in the 1992 expansion draft, and it's amazing they ever went on to win World Series with a drafting strategy like that. He was a fricken monster in the minors posting a .295 average, 102 homeruns, and a .882 OPS in 5 seasons. Following his disappointing time in American baseball, he went on to experience success in Japan with the Nippon Ham Fighters and Osaka Kintetsu Buffaloes.

I am almost ashamed to admit that I have the 1993 First Round Draft pick for the Florida Marlins for Nigel Wilson. He sucks donkey-balls.

Donkey-balls mixed with a little Horse Va-Jay-Jay equals a mule.

Nigel Wilson is one of the worst players to play at MLB level. I know him personally for almost 10 years and he has never taught me anything about baseball. The only thing he is good at is getting credit for being a "hometown" hero in the Durham region. He is only in it for himself and does not care for youth players. He is ONLY in it for the money. BOYCOTT Nigel and his facility

Nigel does help youth. I have a son and we use his facility. Many times Nigel has given his time to my son even though he was not paid as an instructor. Just cmae in the tunnel and give him help. Hr has also given many hours of his time to the Eastern Ontario Baseball Association

I personally believe Nigel is in it for himself. Yes, he does help out the EOBA and young players but at a cost. He does this to earn reputation to allow himself and competitive edge to get money. He targets the EOBA and youth because he knows that they will bring the players and $$$. HR Baseball Academy, Baseball Zone, Pro Teach Baseball have better instruction and facility but HR Baseball in perticular has taken a beating because of the EOBA. Nigel brought the EOBA to his new facility and told them to bacically boycoot HR, and now what I recently heard that if any EOBA player enters HR facility they are banned from playing on EOBA teams. This again turns to my point that because of Nigel being in it for himself, other facility have lost out. Nigel needs the business because of his facility being below average, he turns to ways in which he can get business. But at what cost Nigel??

Hello you jerk offs (most of you),
I would personally like to say that you are all absute idiots and have far too much time on your hands to be ridiculing a person who is far more sucessfull then you will ever be!!!! All of you should spend your time praising people like this due to the fact that he is a hero to some and an overall anazing role model for kids every where! You should get to know him personally before you decide to judge him..... If you did that you would find that he is just a big kid with an even bigger heart who is in it ONLY for the kids sakes, he is an overall amazing individual!

You can make fun of his MLB career all you want as that is fair because it is factual (stats). But the fact is at least he played ball and got paid to do it.

Nigel is an awesome guy. I work out at his place and he always provides some tips on hitting and of course genuine friendship.

He is in it because he loves baseball. If he was in it for the money you would see a pro-shop at his place selling baseball stuff at retail cost. Instead he gives away a lot of things to people ie batting gloves if you forgot yours.

GM-Carson said...

This post had nothing to do with his personal life. Fact is he sucked as a MLB player, and that's exactly what I presented. Nothing more, nothing less.

So how is your MLB career going ... oh you have never played. I'm amazed that someone like you who has not accomplish sweet shit all has the nerve to put down and make fun of a person who actually played in the MLB. Stop being a hater asshole. Until you have had a successful career in the MLB shut the f*#k up.

Congrats to Nigel Wilson for running a successful business and educating youth across the GTA. Regardless of stats in the MLB Nigel went on to a very successful career and earned the respect of MANY top named MLB players for his tenure in Japan. Regardless of the comments and belittling of business Nigel continues to be the most respected baseball instructor in Canada. There is bigger and better years ahead with baseball instruction and Nigel Wilson Baseball academy's. I would not hesitate to have any of my players attend camps and programs run out of his current facility and we are eager to visit the new facility when complete. Nigel has surrounded himself with a top drawer group of business and technical professionals who believe in his methodology and visions with recent invites to bring his players to stay and train at Major League facilities in Florida. I pass 4 baseball facilities enroute to Nigels from the west end of the GTA, that has to speak volumes.

Best Regards,
R-8

I am the Nigel Wilson and I am the greatest player in history! You all are the ones who suck balls! I had a magnificent strategy but the MLB powers that be ruined it. I was rope a dopin everyone into thinking I was awful! Bam, I was going to unleash my awesomeness but the man behind the curtain saw to it that I would not get my chance. They sullied my good name and I was banished to the land of the resting mantis, as Japan is commonly referred to. I enjoyed my time there and the people treated me as a midget among gods. You will rue the day you bashed the Nigel Wilson!
