From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

George Francis Wilson (March 29, 1889 – March 26, 1967), nicknamed Squanto, was an American catcher in Major League Baseball who participated in just six major league games. He batted .188 (3-for-16) in five games for the Detroit Tigers in 1911 and appeared in one game for the Boston Red Sox in 1914 where he did not bat.

The reason for Wilson's nickname is unknown, but he was raised in New England, and "Squanto" was a legendary Native American who helped the English colonists in Massachusetts develop agricultural techniques and served as an interpreter between the colonists and the Wampanoag.

Born in Old Town, Maine, Wilson is one of only six Major League players from Bowdoin College, Maine. He died on March 26, 1967, in Winthrop, Maine.
