What's more exciting than watching Russell Wilson throw a touchdown pass? Watching him throw out a ceremonial first pitch at a Major League Baseball game.
Actually, the touchdown pass is probably more exciting, but you can judge for yourself on April 2 when Wilson throws out the ceremonial first pitch for the Rangers in their 8:05 p.m. ET game against the Phillies.
Why the Rangers? Back in December, Texas selected Wilson in MLB's Rule 5 Draft, which transferred his baseball rights from the Rockies to the Rangers. Since then, Wilson has been wearing a Rangers uniform almost as often as he's been wearing a Seahawks uniform.
Wilson has his own Rangers baseball card and he even worked out with the team on March 3. Wilson isn't the only one wearing a 'Russell Wilson' Rangers jersey either, apparently, everyone else in Texas is too. Wilson's Rangers jersey was one of the top-sellers in early March.
If you're a 49ers fan hoping that Wilson embarrasses himself and botches the first pitch, that probably won't happen because he's actually a veteran throwing them out. The Seahawks quarterback threw out the first pitch last June in Seattle when the Mariners hosted the Yankees.
If you need a non-Russell Wilson reason to go to the Rangers-Phillies game, how about cheap hot dogs: Wednesday is Nolan Ryan Beef Dollar Hot Dog Night at Global Life Park in Arlington, Texas. Beef hot dogs are good, but they're even better when they're only a dollar.
