Russell Wilson, who was traded to the Yankees from the Rangers earlier in February, reported to spring training on Monday. The Seahawks QB showed off his power by going deep multiple times during batting practice.
Wilson proved the Mets sideshow Tim Tebow isn’t the only quarterback who can hit a baseball over the fence. Two quarterbacks at spring training should keep the fine folks at ESPN pretty busy.
