Milton Edward Wilcox (born April 20, 1950) is a former Major League Baseball pitcher who had a sixteen-year career from 1970 to 1986. He played for the Cincinnati Reds and Chicago Cubs of the National League and the Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers and Seattle Mariners of the American League. He won a World Series title with the Tigers in 1984. On April 15, 1983, Wilcox came within one out of a perfect game, when Chicago White Sox batter Jerry Hairston, Sr. singled off him in the ninth inning. The perfect game would also have been the first no-hitter by a Tiger since Jim Bunning in 1958.
