VIDEO: Russell Wilson takes at-bat for Yankees during Friday's game

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson took his first at-bat as a New York Yankee Friday during Spring Training.
 
Wilson did make contact during the at-bat, but struck out swinging with a 2-2 count.

 
The YES Network announcer eluded to more at-bats for Wilson, saying it “wouldn’t be his last” at-bat after he struck out.

Wilson was drafted by the Texas Rangers and participated in Spring Training practices for several years with the team but never appeared in a game.

He was traded this offseason to the Yankees, where he now has one at-bat to his name.
