Wilson Betemit (pronounced BET-a-mitt) (born November 2, 1981 in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) is a Dominican professional baseball infielder for the Detroit Tigers of Major League Baseball. He is 6'2" and weighs 220 pounds. He has previously played for the Atlanta Braves, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Chicago White Sox, and Kansas City Royals.

Betemit is a 1996 graduate of Juan Bautista Safra High School, where he played baseball. He was signed as an undrafted free agent shortstop by the Atlanta Braves on July 28, 1996 when he was 14 and a half years old. According to Major League Baseball's age restrictions regarding the signing of minors, teams are not allowed to sign anyone under the age of sixteen. Because of this rule violation, the Braves were fined $100,000 and prohibited from scouting and signing players from the Dominican Republic for six months in 2000.

He began his professional career in 1997 with the Gulf Coast Braves.
