Seahawks’ Russell Wilson To Attend Yankees’ Spring Training For Second Year

Russell Wilson is ready to scratch his baseball itch again.
The Seattle Seahawks quarterback will attend spring training with the New York Yankees, his agent Mark Rogers told MLB Network Radio on Monday, according to MLB Network’s Jon Morosi.
The six-time Pro Bowl QB might have been a baseball player if his football career didn’t flourish after the Seahawks picked him in the third round of the 2012 NFL Draft.
The Baltimore Orioles drafted him in the 41st round of the 2007 MLB draft but he elected to attend North Carolina State instead of pursuing a pro baseball career at the time.
The Colorado Rockies drafted him in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB Draft, and he played Class-A baseball in their organization that summer and the next.
The Texas Rangers acquired Wilson’s baseball rights in December 2013 via the Rule 5 draft, over a year and a half after he had decided to focus on football.
He attended spring training with the Rangers in 2014 and 2015, despite his status as an NFL star.
The Rangers traded him to the Yankees last winter.
Wilson’s return to Yankees spring training doesn’t mean he’ll pursue a baseball career.
