WATCH: Russell Wilson strikes out in debut with the Yankees

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson made his spring training debut with the New York Yankees on Friday. Yeah, that’s a sentence most of us figured wouldn’t be written…ever.

In any event, Wilson’s initial at-bat with the Yankees didn’t result in the type of success he’s seen on the football field. Wilson struck out on a fastball high and inside from Atlanta Braves pitcher Max Fried.

It most definitely wasn’t a thing of beauty for the Super Bowl winning quarterback.

Earlier in the at-bat, Fried made Wilson look absolutely silly on a curve.

Nice try, Russ. It’s now time to focus on football. No one needs you pulling a Michael Jordan here.
