Artie Wilson played five years for the Birmingham Black Barons where he twice led the Negro American League in batting and became a mentor and friend to a teenage teammate, Willie Mays.


A speedy left-handed hitter, Wilson epitomized the table-setting leadoff man. He hit so often to the opposite field that some teams played three infielders on the left side against him. He was also an accomplished base-stealer and a slick fielder, especially adept at turning the double play.
