Russell Wilson is fresh off a Superbowl win with the Seattle Seahawks. The star quarterback isn't limiting himself to just one sport though. He wants to fulfill his dream of playing both football and baseball.
Wilson has a history of baseball, he was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the fourth round of the 2010 MLB draft and played with their affiliate teams until 2012 when he left to pursue a career in pro football.
In December of 2013, Wilson was acquired by the Texas Rangers in the Triple-A phase of the Rule 5 Draft.
Yesterday, on March 3rd, 2014, Wilson was a part of the infield drills at the Rangers spring training. Many Seahawks fans came to support Russell and most of Wilson's new Texas Rangers jerseys were sold.
When asked about his experience with the Rangers, Wilson said, "It was an unbelievable experience, better than anything I ever imagined."
The Rangers wouldn't allow Russell to play or take part in batting practice at the risk that he could get injured.
The Rangers brought in Russell Wilson to be a motivation for the players. Nothing seems more motivating than bringing in a quarterback of a Superbowl winning team, even the Rangers players wanted autographs.
