Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson (73) fields ground balls during practice with the New York Yankees before a spring-training game against the Philadelphia Phillies at George M. Steinbrenner Field. With the Yankees all on the top step of the dugout, Wilson struck out facing the Braves pitcher. "I'll always remember when they announced my name".

About an hour and a half before first pitch, Wilson joked with reporters about the possibility that he might play Friday or Saturday (against the Red Sox in Fort Myers, Florida).

"The best thing for me is, I had no fear", Wilson said. With him scheduled to leave on Sunday, the former Colorado Rockies' fourth-round draft pick in 2010 finally got his chance.

The 29-year-old Wilson led the Seahawks to the 2014 Super Bowl championship. "I'm definitely not sitting on the couch".

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll nevertheless offered up some hitting advice for Wilson on Thursday.




That also puts Wilson ahead of Adam Lind, who showed up before the game, a duffel bag packed with bats slung over his shoulder, after Brian Cashman rescued him from "Camp Jobless" down I-75 in Bradenton. They have known his interest in wanting to get a live look at major league pitching.

Wilson went down swinging on a 93-mph fastball from Fried but earned appreciative applause from the crowd at Steinbrenner Field in Tampa.

"So far, he's not doing a great job with the pitches going away from him", Carroll said. "Aside from that, curve ball is still giving him a problem, as it always did, you know, back in the day". "So we will see what happens".

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has had a unique offseason, spending some of his down time from the National Football League taking up another hobby, the sport of professional baseball for one of the foremost franchises in the game, the New York Yankees.
