Russell Wilson blasts homers at Yankees batting practice

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

He hasn't played a game in spring training or the minors since 2011, but he's been traded twice since then, most recently this past offseason by the Rangers to the Yankees. On Instagram and Twitter, you can see how excited Wilson is in a selfie video, talking to Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton.

"I (asked him), 'Hey man, did you bring a football?' He says he'll have one by the end of the week, so you might catch us out on a back field running some routes".

"Ever since I was a young kid I always dreamed to be a Yankee". Growing up, they were his favorite team, and Derek Jeter was his favorite player.

He's wearing No. 73 - a combination of No. 7, his high school baseball number and No. 3, his pro football number.

"Yankees GM Brian Cashman said he's not opposed to Russell Wilson taking an at-bat in a spring training game". While the Yankees gave playing time to football players Deion Sanders and Drew Henson, they said Wilson will not appear in any spring training games; they want to observe his leadership skills, and he wants to soak up the attitude of a franchise with a record 27 World Series titles.

"I think if you really know me you know baseball has been a part of my blood and who I am and [where] I've come from and what I've done". I'm interested to see how a dude who was in the Super Bowl does in this sport.

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 manager Aaron Boone alluded to Wilson's nickname "The Professor" when asked about his presence in camp. In addition to making routine throws to first, he also worked on his double-play pivots with shortstop Didi Gregorius. I'm ready to go up there if they want me to, though.

"I believe in great habits, and the difference between winning and losing is very fine", Wilson said.

According to Coley Harvey of ESPN, Wilson earned applause from coaches and fellow players after showcasing his glove work in the field.

Despite the circus-like atmosphere that Wilson's arrival at Steinbrenner Field has created, he told reporters in a news conference that his appearance here was honest. "I obviously want to get out there, but I also don't want to get in the way". Wilson spent parts of two seasons playing Class A ball in the Rockies organization before he was selected in the third round of the 2012 National Football League draft by Seattle.
