Russell Wilson strikes out in debut with the Yankees

Russell Wilson hit 6 home runs in batting practice during his first day at Spring Training with the Yankees

Wilson received a loud ovation when introduced and fouled back the first pitch sharply to the screen.

Wilson was drafted by the Texas Rangers and participated in Spring Training practices for several years with the team but never appeared in a game.

Wilson wanted his Seahawks jersey number 3 for his spring-training cameo with the Yankees this week in Florida but joked it was taken (by Ruth, forever).

So far, it sounds like Wilson is having a great time. He proceeded to strike out swinging, as Braves left-hander Max Fried sent him down on a 93-mph fastball up and in. "He's playing baseball. I don't think there is anything wrong with that at all".

Briefly Former Heisman Trophy victor Tim Tebow, in his first spring training start with the Mets this year, struck out against reigning NL Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer and then singled off Erick Fedde in a 2-1 loss to the Nationals in Port St. Lucie, Fla. I was ready and will always remember that. "These guys know what they're doing". He wants to soak up the attitude of a franchise with a record 27 World Series titles.

Wilson hasn't had an AB since his minor-league career ended in 2011.

Wilson's desire to play baseball led to controversy at N.C. State.

Wilson hinted at the possibility of getting a chance to hit before the game.

The Seahawks know what Wilson is about, so they knew he would bring the same intensity to his spring training regimen that he did to his preparation for the National Football League schedule.

The Yankees were able to rally after trailing 4-0. Third baseman Miguel Andujar continued his hot hitting with a two-run double. "Mistakes on my part", Tanaka said through a translator. He threw four pitches to Marcell Ozuna in the inning, then departed. Judge played right field for the first time since offseason left shoulder surgery. OF Clint Frazier still has concussion symptoms and underwent an MRI.
