Wilson Takes First At-Bat With Yankees

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson received an at-bat on Friday in the New York Yankees' spring training game against the Atlanta Braves.

Wilson pinch-hit for Yankees star Aaron Judge in the bottom of the fifth inning and went five pitches against Braves starter Max Fried. The Seahawks quarterback fouled his first pitch behind home plate before eventually striking out in his plate appearance with the count at 2-2. 

Still, Wilson lived a one-of-a-kind experience taking swings for the Yankees in a baseball game. You can watch his at-bat in the video above.
