Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is currently at spring training with the New York Yankees, and he’s crushing baseballs.
Yankees writer Erik Boland posted a video of Wilson getting in some swings Monday. The dude was sending balls to the atmosphere.

That dude has some serious hitting power. Just absolutely demolishing balls like it’s nothing. I guess we really shouldn’t be overly surprised. The man has a cannon for an arm in the NFL, and can make all the throws anywhere on the field.
I’d be a little surprised if he couldn’t hit it out of the park, but it just looks so easy when he does it. Doesn’t even appear like he’s trying.
Maybe he should give this whole baseball thing a shot if he decides to hang up his cleats early because he can bang baseballs deep.
