Howard "Highball" Wilson pitched four seasons in the major leagues for three different teams. Born in Philadelphia, PA, he was part of the pennant-winning 1902 Athletics, for whom he went 7-4 with a 2.43 ERA (the league ERA was 3.57).
While Howard is remembered with the nickname "Highball", it appears that Sporting Life called him "Abe Wilson".
There is a photo of him as part of the 1902 Athletics in the book Connie Mack and the Early Years of Baseball.
