Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Friday, June 21 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
Metcalf's Mariners Debut
"I was doing good before y'all came over here, I swear!" Said the No. 64 overall draft pick as the rest of the Seahawks 2019 rookie class came parading down the hallway of T-Mobile Park. Seahawks rookie wide receiver DK Metcalf was practicing his pitching while sporting his custom-made Seattle Mariners jersey, just moments before heading out to the diamond.
Metcalf was invited to throw out the first pitch at the Mariners game vs. the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday evening. Unlike other first pitches we've seen from Seahawks players, the wideout rolled deep with a group of 19 other rookies.
I know what you're thinking, and the answer is no. Metcalf did not "50 Cent" it. He stood up on the mound, backed by all of his rookie teammates, and threw a great pitch across home plate to outfielder Mallex Smith. "Welcome to the crew, the whole Seattle crew!" Exclaimed Smith as he signed Metcalf's baseball right after the pitch. "I wish I had something for you to sign!"
Our crew had Metcalf mic'd up for the whole experience, so be sure to check out the video embedded at the top of the article. The 6' 4" receiver must've been good luck too because the M's got the dub last night against the Orioles, 5-2.
