"Motorvationally Speaking" - His Father's Son

For a small Canadian province, New Brunswick has a long list of baseball heroes.

Fredericton's Matt Stairs, Miramichi's Jason Dickson and Cap Pele's Rheal Cormier are just some who went on to achieve stardom at the major league level while countless other legends were formed in a provincial senior league that ranks second to none in the country. Billy "the Buzzard" Saunders, Harry "the Hat" Stephenson and the "Spaceman", Bill Lee were among the more colorful personalities on New Brunswick ball diamonds but few were more effective in nurturing the players who play the game than St. Stephen's Rod Wilson Sr. Thousands of young men and women have been touched by the coaching and teaching from this New Brunswick Sports Hall-of-Famer; in particular sons Rod Jr. and Derek Wilson who continue to live the values dad shared on the sandlot.

Today, TSB features a New Brunswick baseball legend in his own right, now carving a new path in the corporate word with NuBody's ... Fredericton's Derek Wilson.
