Russell Wilson has reported to the New York Yankees for a week of Spring Training.

It appears he's doing the same this year for the Yankees, who traded for him February 7.

On this day, it was in a loaded group alongside Aaron Judge, Giancarlo Stanton, Greg Bird and Gary Sanchez.

"(Baseball) is what I've known my whole life", Wilson told reporters after Monday's practice.

"Ever since I was a young kid I always dreamed of being a Yankee".

Wilson, who also took some reps at second base, chose No. 73 because No. 7 was his high school baseball number and he wears No. 3 for the Seahawks.

The Seattle Seahawks QB finally made his appearance in pinstripes during the Yankees' spring training camp, and he wasted no time making an impression.

All of it could spell further trouble for the Proteas who could be in for another trial by spin. With both opener back in the pavilion after five overs, the hosts seemed to be in deep trouble.

Although Wilson is officially on the Yankees' spring training roster, he won't be playing in any games. "If you really know me, baseball's been part of my blood". He's a third-round draft choice who overcame the odds of being 5-foot-10 and 5/8ths inches tall, turning into the best quarterback in Seahawks history, one who could be a Hall of Famer someday. "When you see me make plays on the football field, a lot of that's a direct correlation to baseball".

"I think for me, the thing that I try to bring to everything is do is knowing that having a championship mindset is an everyday thing, and you always have to believe it and work at it", Wilson said.

Many sports fans know about Wilson's talents and abilities as a football player in the NFL.

"I believe in great habits, and the difference between winning and losing is very fine", Wilson said. "I was pretty pumped", he said.

"There's an aroma around here that I've got to figure out, and I can't wait to learn more about it and use that for my football career", he said.

Despite the circus-like atmosphere that Wilson's arrival at Steinbrenner Field has created, he told reporters in a news conference that his appearance here was honest. Obviously he had to come back down to Earth a bit. "I'll be ready to swing. hack away and turn some double plays".

For his part, Wilson referred to Judge and Stanton as "future Hall of Famers".
