James Wilson, nicknamed "Ace," was an American professional athlete in soccer and baseball. He began his professional sports career as a soccer outside right in the National Association Football League and American Soccer League before becoming a catcher, manager and coach in Major League Baseball. In the 1940 World Series, the 40-year-old Wilson came off the coaching lines to take over as the regular catcher for the Cincinnati Reds when the starter, future Baseball Hall of Famer Ernie Lombardi, was injured. Wilson batted .353 in six games, playing a key role in Cincinnati's defeat of the Detroit Tigers, four games to three, for the world championship.
