Russell Wilson fulfilled a childhood dream when he took the field for the Yankees for the first time today. Wilson took some infield at second, and also stepped into the batting cage to take some rips.
Wilson impressed curious onlookers, including Aaron Judge, by launching 5 credible bombs. Not bad for a lifetime minor leaguer.
Watch Russ livin’ the dream.
Aaron Judge & Russell Wilson hit consecutively today, and both put on a show. Unofficially, Judge had 10 BP homers. Wilson and his 31-ounce Louisville Slugger had five. Giancarlo Stanton paced the group with 15. Wilson said one of his home runs came in a ninth-inning scenario pic.twitter.com/MKTtADhir8
