Wilson spent most of his career as a backup, although he was the starting catcher for the Federal League's Chicago Whales during their two-season tenure in 1914-15. He was the catcher for Cubs pitcher Hippo Vaughn during the "double no-hitter" game in 1917. The Cubs lost the game on an error by Wilson in the 10th inning.
