Robert Louis "Bobby" Wilson (born April 8, 1983 in Dunedin, Florida) is a catcher for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim of Major League Baseball. He first attended Seminole High School and later went to St. Petersburg College, Florida.
Wilson began the 2008 season for the Salt Lake Bees, the Angels Triple-A affiliate. He began the season hitting .339 in 16 games with no home runs and 12 RBI. On April 28, 2008, Wilson was recalled by the major league club and made his major league debut on that same day against the Oakland Athletics. He came in as a defensive replacement for Mike Napoli and in his first at-bat, he hit a single off Dallas Braden.
On April 23, 2010, while playing catcher for the Angels in a season game against the New York Yankees, Wilson encountered a head-on collision with Mark Teixeira, who was attempting to slide into home. Wilson was knocked away, injuring his head and ankle. Mike Napoli then came in to play catcher for the remainder of the game.
