James George Wilson (born December 29, 1960 in Corvallis, Oregon) is a retired professional baseball player. He played parts of two seasons in Major League Baseball, appearing most often defensively as a first baseman, but more often as a designated hitter. He also played one season in Nippon Professional Baseball in Japan.

Wilson was drafted out of Oregon State University by the Cleveland Indians in the 2nd round of the 1982 Major League Baseball Draft,[1] and played four games for the Indians in 1985.

He was released by the Indians following the 1986 season. After a brief tour in the Minnesota Twins organization, Wilson signed as a free agent with the Seattle Mariners on March 1, 1988, playing five games for them in the 1989 season.

In 1990, Wilson played in six games for the Daiei Hawks in the Japanese Pacific League. He returned to North America, playing in the minor leagues, Mexican League, and independent leagues until 1994, when he retired.

After his playing days were over, Wilson became a high school and legion coach in Vancouver, Washington. He now resides in Corvallis, Oregon and is a play by play announcer with Mike Parker for the Oregon State Beavers football team.
