Baseball Player
    (February 9, 1956- )
    Born in Bamberg, South Carolina
    Birth name was William Hayward Wilson
    Center fielder for the New York Mets (1980-89) and Toronto Blue Jays (1989-91)
    Career batting average: .274
    67 home runs, 438 RBIs, 327 stolen bases
    He reportedly got his nickname from his inability to pronounce the word 'milk' as a child.
    He had a low on-base percentage for a lead-off hitter.
    After suffering an eye injury in spring training (1986), he had trouble judging fly balls the rest of his career.
    He is both uncle and stepfather to Preston Wilson.
    Mets fans enjoyed chanting 'Moooo-kie!'
    He and his wife started an educational center for girls.
    He hit perhaps the most famous grounder in baseball history - the one that rolled through Bill Buckner's legs to keep the Mets' 1986 World Series hopes alive.
    He said of Buckner, 'He's a true friend and a true professional. That play doesn't define his life or his career.'
