Russell Wilson was drafted recently by the Texas Rangers baseball team, but today he said he would show up at spring training.
“I’m sure I’ll go down there [to Surprise, Ariz.] for spring training and just talk to some of their players and hang out some,” Wilson said. “It’ll be kinda cool, but that’s down the road. I’m trying to win a game [against the New York Giants] this week.”
Wilson, once played second base in the Rockies’ minor league system, but admitted he isn’t quitting his day job.
“I love baseball,” Wilson said. “It’s a relaxing sport and I’ve played it my whole life. But football is where my first love is.
“There’s nothing better than playing quarterback in front of thousands of people and it being third-and-6 and the game on the line and having to make a play. That’s why I decided to play football. I love those moments in big games.”
