Russell Wilson Hopes To Figure Out Yankees' 'Aroma'

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson does fielding drills before a baseball spring exhibition game against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday Feb. 26 2018 in Tampa Fla

Baseball still has his heart.

Wilson had his dream come true three weeks ago when the Texas Rangers, for whom he had worked out in spring training in previous Seahawks offseasons, ceremoniously "traded" him to NY.

"Is this just a stunt?" he said.

"If you really know me, baseball's been a part of my blood". "It's been a part of who I am and where I've come from and what I've done".

Move over Tim Tebow, you're not the only football player on a NY baseball team who can hit the ball out of the park.

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

A middle infielder who hit.229 over 93 games at Class A in the Colorado Rockies" system in 2011 and "12, Wilson became the Seahawks' starting quarterback in autumn 2012. It's not rare for celebrities to get a chance to hang out at Spring Training and prove their athletic prowess on the baseball field. Yankees manager Aaron Boone has said that the primary duty of Wilson is to enjoy his time with the team.

"Ever since I was a young kid I always dreamed of being a Yankee, I always watched them, and my favorite player was Derek Jeter", the Seahawks quarterback said Monday. "And I can't wait to learn more about it and use that for my football career, as well". He then hit three in his next four tries, cleared the left-field walkway and clanked his final drive off the center-field batter's eye.

"(Seahawks head coach) Pete Carroll hasn't reached out to me just yet. "When he's working out, everything is for a objective". He wand the Yankees were all smiles.

"Not only did the All-Pro pivot show off his power with six home runs during the session, but Wilson actually out-homered Sanchez 6-5 on the day, according to ESPN's Coley Harvey".

The Yankees are so thrilled to have him that they've given him a No. 73 jersey - because of Babe Ruth, No. 3 is retired - and a locker. I loved watching the best players, the best teams play.

"I definitely love playing", said Wilson, who has earned $59 million so far in the National Football League, according to contract data from Spotrac.

"It's an honor to be here", said Wilson, whom the Yankees acquired from the Rangers earlier this month. Mainly, Wilson's presence is "a good situation for us to get some exposure to one of the premier athletes in sport", and "breaks up the monotony of our camp".

"I told him it does not look like it", Gregorius said. "But, my focus is winning more Super Bowls". "But baseball", he said, "it's like riding bike".

Asked what positions Stanton and Judge would play in the NFL, Wilson responded tight end. Although he's officially on the training roster, he won't play any games. Cashman is a fan of Carroll, too, "so I look forward to hearing from him".
