On March 2, 2018 — 2018 – One of the biggest stories in spring training this year has been the presence of NFL quarterback Russell Wilson at the Yankees’ camp. Today, he gets to play in a game for the first time since he was a minor league infielder in 2011 as he pinch-hits for Aaron Judge in a Grapefruit League game against the Atlanta Braves. He strikes out against Max Fried, but does not look out of place as he takes a good cut to foul off a hard fastball and works the count to 2-2 before a swing and miss ends his lone at-bat. He will now return to his normal occupations.
