Watch Russell Wilson Crush Batting Practice Homer At Yankees Spring Training

Share

Wilson is a mirror of the perseverance and hard work it takes to achieve a dream whether that dream is playing second base for the New York Yankees or playing quarterback for the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl-winning quarterback is scheduled to spend five days at the facility with the Yankees following a trade last week in which he was sent to NY by the Texas Rangers.

And it shouldn't take too long for fans to see what Wilson's got - on Monday he was assigned to hit with the meat of the order, including Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Gary Sanchez and Greg Bird.

It was something he always wanted to do, put on a Yankee uniform. Doesn't matter, I think it would be worth the risk to watch him play baseball.

He's wearing No. 73 - a combination of No. 7, his high school baseball number and No. 3, his pro football number.

Wilson, as he's done the past few MLB seasons, broke out his baseball glove and bat for spring training.

"I'm ready to go up there if they want me to", Wilson said upon his arrival Monday.

Russell Wilson said this wasn't a publicity stunt, that people thinking otherwise didn't really know him and what he was all about - and maybe he was right. It's all about who I am and where I come from and what I've done. Wilson played both football and baseball at Collegiate School, a preparatory school in Richmond, Virginia.

Still, an overflow of cameras and reporters were there to chronicle his first day at Yankee camp. While baseball is in his blood, he will be just as careful on the mound as he is on the field. "And I can't wait to learn more about it and use that for my football career, as well".

"I love playing the game". At the very least, he's got the backing of the New York Yankees. I want him to kind of come in and just kind of be himself, and get to know us and enjoy himself. Wilson spent parts of two seasons playing Class A ball in the Rockies organization before he was selected in the third round of the 2012 National Football League draft by Seattle.

Judge declined to go into specifics about what Wilson said but did say he continued to talk to the quarterback afterward.
