Seahawks’ Russell Wilson Leaves Door Open for MLB Career
(SURPIRSE, Ariz.) — Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is enjoying his Major League Baseball experience as he participates in the Texas Rangers spring training. Still, he left the door open to pursue it further at some point.
“You never say never,” Wilson said when asked if he’d ever pursue baseball further. “I’ve always had the dream of playing two sports. If somehow it was a miracle that it could work out, I’d consider it. At the same time, my focus is winning the championship with the Seattle Seahawks and hope to be playing for a long time.”
Back in December, the Rangers selected Wilson in the Rule 5 Draft from the Colorado Rockies farm system. The Rangers decided to invite him to spring training and he accepted.
It was Wilson’s first time playing baseball since 2011, when he was part of the Rockies Class A affiliate. He hit a combined .229 in 2010 and 2011.
In just his second NFL season, Wilson led the Seahawks to their first-ever Super Bowl Championship this past February.
