Seahawks QB Russell Wilson calls stint with Yankees no 'stunt'

Seahawks QB Russell Wilson calls stint with Yankees no 'stunt'

What's next, Pete Carroll coaching UCLA to basketball's Final Four?

Before stepping into the cage, Wilson fielded ground balls at second base.

Yankees writer Erik Boland posted a video of Wilson getting in some swings Monday.

The highlight of the arrival of Wilson came as Group 2 at batting practice for the Yankees took its turn. He hit balls out of it.

"It's always fun to have a guy that's enthusiastic about baseball, that's a fan of the Yankees, that wants to come to camp - especially as great of an athlete as he is - I think he can offer a lot, with him being a victor and things like that".

Wilson played baseball through college, spent some time in the minors and is a self-proclaimed Yankees fan. It's a combination of Wilson's old baseball number and his Seahawks' number 3. "But I think somebody had it already", Wilson deadpanned.

"It's an honor to be here", Wilson told the media before his first workout.

"The thing I'm most excited is really learning about the Yankees and how they've won 27 world championships. I know you're all over the world, but we love you".

Judge will get one or two at-bats as the designated hitter in his first game since off-season left shoulder surgery, while Stanton will play right field. He went on to play three seasons of baseball at N.C. State. Wilson has been enjoying his time being around baseball again. 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. "When you see me make plays on the football field, a lot of that's a direct correlation to baseball". "And my focus is winning more Super Bowls, doing whatever it takes to do that". He was selected by Texas in the 2013 winter meeting draft and attended spring training with the Rangers.

Wilson knows there is plenty for him to absorb from working with a historically great franchise in the Yankees, hoping that the experience only betters his football career - while also fulfilling some childhood fantasies.
