About Glenn Wilson
(courtesy of Wikipedia)

Glenn Dwight Wilson (born December 22, 1958 in Baytown, TX) is a former Major League Baseball outfielder. He was selected in the 1st round (18th pick) of the 1980 amateur draft by the Detroit Tigers, and made his Major League debut in a Tigers uniform on April 15, 1982. He played two seasons for the Tigers, and then was traded on March 24, 1984 along with C-1B John Wockenfuss to the Philadelphia Phillies for P Willie Hernandez and 1b Dave Bergman. Subsequent years saw him playing for the Seattle Mariners, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Houston Astros. Wilson retired from Major League baseball in 1993, having played ten seasons.

Wilson was best known for his tremendous throwing arm, and led all National League outfielders for assists in 1985 and 1986, throwing out 18 and 20 base-runners from right field, respectively. In 1987, Wilson twice threw out base runners who attempted to reach first base after apparent singles into right field. His most successful season as a batter was in 1985, when he drove in 102 runs, and recorded 167 base hits with 14 home runs in 608 at-bats for a .275 batting average. He was selected as a National League All-Star in 1985.

Glenn is now an ordained minister and lives with his wife Kim in the Houston, Texas metro area. He has three grown sons, Glenn Jr., Lance and Andy.

Book Blurb

Glenn Wilson believed from the time he was young that he was destined to be a pro athlete. His journey from lightly recruited high school student athlete to first round draft pick of the Detroit Tigers in 1980 was the script that many only dream about becoming reality. Glenn achieved his goal, playing ten seasons in Major League Baseball, including making the National League All-Star team in 1985. Injuries and disappointment shortened Glenn’s career and when investments soured, business ventures failed and he found himself living in pain and misery he went in search of truth and on that journey Glenn came to know what it meant to truly have a relationship with God. Headed Home takes you on this journey from childhood to athlete to a broken man finding the hope of knowing Jesus Christ. When Glenn experienced the grace of Christ, his life was never the same, this book brings us the hope that God has a plan for all of us and he wants to change our lives.

I have worked with Darrell in many different settings over the years. This last year I brought Darrell in to speak at a student event that I was hosting at my church. The Lord used Darrell in an amazing way! His message was powerful and pointed! He explains the depths of the Scripture with unbelievable clarity and confidence. All the participants were focused on his every word while he spoke. I would not hesitate to bring him back and I do not hesitate to recommend him to you for any type of event that you may host. You and your ministry WILL be blessed!

Press and Reviews for NORK

Reviews

MARK MATLOCK- Wisdom Works Ministries (Planet Wisdom) and Vice President of Event Content at Youth Specialties

“Leave it to Darrell Halk to capture the lives of real teenagers as they experience life and faith. Darrell has been in the trenches with teens for years walking with them through the trials, triumphs and tragedies of navigating a life of faith in Jesus Christ. “No One Really Knows” captures his insights along the way and offers real hope.”

JOHN SHERRILL- Traveling Worship leader, President of Reach Ministries

“A great story of relationships, running, and redemption. Like Darrell’s story, it took all of these things in my life and in my story to see the goodness and glory of Jesus. This story is a great read for any person who is searching, growing, and seeking… it’s honest and raw,…hopeful and real. I left this story with a bittersweet reminder of my high school days… and the people and situations God used in my life to bring me to the point of surrender.”

 ANDY MORRIS- President of Serve Management Group (Mission Serve)“Darrell Halk deals head on with many of the challenges that teenagers face today. Challenges that Christian students are not immune from. A story that all of us can relate to that have struggled with giving God complete control.”

GLENN WILSON- FORMER MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL PLAYER AND MINISTER“Darrell Halk has a remarkable testimony that every person should hear. He writes a heart warming story to share this testimony that will make you think of the roads available to you and your children. He eloquently describes his real life experiences without losing the reader in language that even most young people can understand. A must read if your trying to understand how life can deal us a difficult hand and how we can endure it.”
