Who is Bump Wills? Maury Wills Son
Bump Wills is an American former professional baseball player, a second baseman in the major leagues for the Texas Rangers (1977–1981) and Chicago Cubs (1982). He also played two seasons in Japan for the Hankyu Braves (1983–84).
Bump Wills was born on July 27, 1952. He is 70 years old.
Like his father Maury, Wills was respected for his speed. In 1978, Wills stole 52 bases, breaking Dave Nelson’s single-season franchise record of 51 in 1972; the number remains a Ranger record for stolen bases in a season.
After playing with the Chicago Cubs in 1982, Wills played the 1983–1984 seasons in Japan before retiring. His MLB career batting average was .266 with 36 home runs and 302 RBI.
Wills is the son of Maury Wills, a major league shortstop who later managed the Seattle Mariners.
In 1977, Bump married Laverne Capilla, with whom he had one child, daughter Mauricia Morning Wills (named after his father Maury). He and Laverne later divorced and Bump married Marla Boland in 1989. They had two daughters during their marriage: Meagan and Madeline Wills. They subsequently divorced.
Wills now lives in Garland, Texas, with his wife Deborah (Shriver), whom he married in 2015. He coaches for the Dallas Mustangs, a youth-select baseball club. He was slated to be the manager of the Royse City Griffins of planned the Southwest League of Professional Baseball in 2019, but the league folded before ever playing.
His net worth is $5 Million.
