Mookie Wilson Chooses Sports Celebrity Marketing As Exclusive Agency

Sports Celebrity Marketing S.C.M. Inc. is proud to be selected as the exclusive agency for former New York Met Mookie Wilson.

(Pompano Beach, Florida) Mookie Wilson has selected Sports Celebrity Marketing S.C.M. Inc. as his exclusive agency. Wilson is best remembered for perhaps the most memorable at-bat in franchise history, dodging a two-ball, two-strike wild pitch from Boston pitcher Bob Stanley in the 10th inning of Game Six of the 1986 World Series that enabled Kevin Mitchell to score the tying run. Wilson then hit a ground ball that trickled under first baseman Bill Buckner's glove, allowing Ray Knight to come home with the winning run and force Game Seven that the Mets would win to capture their second World Championship. Quite different from a game-winning home run, the accumulated excitement of the slowly building rally capped by the tension of Wilson's at-bat made the game one of the most exciting in Series history.

Wilson was an outfielder with the Mets from 1980-1989. He ranks second on the team's all-time list in stolen bases (281) and triples (62), fourth in hits (1,112), runs (592) and at-bats (4,027) and sixth in games played (1,116).

As the senior member of the team in the second half of the 1980's, Wilson was an important clubhouse influence. His hustle set an example for younger players. He was an unselfish team leader until he was traded to Toronto in the second half of 1989. He sparked the Blue Jays to the 1989 Division Title and fittingly scored the run that clinched First Place.

Wilson was the Mets first base coach from 1997-2002, and also managed the Kingsport Mets (R) of the Appalachian League in 2003 and 2004. In 2005 he went on to manage the Brooklyn Cyclones, the Mets A club in the New York-Penn League. Mookie Wilson continues to work with the New York Mets as a minor league outfield and base running coordinator.
