Wagner was born June 28, 1940, in Bridgeport, Illinois. When he was 25 years old, in 1965, he pitched his rookie season for the Philadelphia Phillies (his debut taking place on April 18, 1965). He was primarily a relief pitcher in his career, although he started on occasion. Throughout his six-year career, this was the season he pitched the most.
Wagner played for the Phillies until 1969, when he was traded to the Boston Red Sox, for whom he played until the end of the 1970 season. He began the season in the minor leagues in 1971, but was released by the Red Sox. He played the rest of the year in the Montreal Expos' organization, ending his professional baseball career.
Wagner has a wife, Freddie Jean, and three sons, Gary Jr. (b.1963), Anthony (1966) and Craig (1970). He now resides in Seymour, Indiana with his wife. He has seven grandchildren and plays golf regularly at Otter Creek Golf Course in Columbus, Indiana.
