The Love of Cars: C.J. Wilson talks about his transition from baseball star to race car driver
At the risk of torquing off every dude who ever wanted to play Major League Baseball and came up short, former all-star pitcher C.J. Wilson reached the pinnacle of the sport without it being his favorite. Auto racing was always his #1.
As Wilson explains in the latest edition of The Love of Cars, Presented by Hagerty, he chose baseball because he could excel at it without being particularly large or strong or skilled in just one area. After a 10-year major league career, Wilson hung up his spikes and charged after his first love instead.
