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.
Maybe not the result @DangeRussWilson wanted, but a fun cameo for the fans (and it looks like Wilson, too). #YANKSonYES pic.twitter.com/RZ3LFawpnf

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.
