Russell Wilson Throws Out First Pitch At Seattle Mariners Game

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson threw out the ceremonial first pitch Wednesday afternoon at Safeco Field as part of Why Not You Day, which raised money for Wilson’s foundation that specializes in empowering change in the world.
