Russell Wilson strikes out in Yankees' spring training tilt

Why Brian Cashman is expecting a call from Pete Carroll

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson could soon be playing in a Major League Baseball spring training game with the New York Yankees, and NFL head coach Pete Carroll is playing it coy when it comes to his support.

While Wilson described the day as a dream come true, it wasn't a day that came undeserved, as Wilson's baseball rights have been drafted and traded for longer than he's been playing professional football.

A former minor-league infielder, Wilson is spending this week working out with the Yankees, who acquired him from Texas last month.

Wilson entered the game as a pinch hitter for Aaron Judge and struck out swinging on five pitches against Atlanta prospect Max Fried.

"We're communicating the whole time", Wilson said.

"I think that when it comes to this, a lot of guys know already, it's a successful organization already", he said. In his last 15 games with Asheville in 2011, Wilson hit.302, had five extra-base hits and nine RBIs.

"I talked to the Rangers I have a relationship with (general manager) Jon Daniels so he let me know what was going on with the Yankees so I kind of got a scoop there. "I went up there with confidence. I'll always remember when they announced my name". He has attended spring training camps with the Rockies, Rangers and now the Yankees every year since, except 2012 due to his preparations for the National Football League draft. "I wouldn't be good at basketball, but baseball, it's like riding a bike once you get back out there for me". He's extraordinarily dedicated to doing everything he can to be right.
