Reading that title might have confused you. Yes, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is a professional baseball player as well.
The Texans Rangers actually traded Wilson’s rights to the New York Yankees earlier in this offseason, then they offered Wilson an opportunity to come in and practice during Spring Training.
On Twitter last week Wilson posted a video talking about crushing homeruns with Aaron Judge. And it actually happened.
Here is Wilson crushing some homers today during batting practice:
Aaron Judge & Russell Wilson hit consecutively today, and both put on a show. Unofficially, Judge had 10 BP homers. Wilson and his 31-ounce Louisville Slugger had five. Giancarlo Stanton paced the group with 15. Wilson said one of his home runs came in a ninth-inning scenario pic.twitter.com/MKTtADhir8
