Russell Wilson joins the Rangers for spring training

Posted: Updated:
SURPRISE, AZ (WKOW) -- It was a surprise for football fans in Surprise, Arizona, when Seattle Seahawk Russell Wilson joined the Texas Rangers for spring training.

Wilson arrived at camp at 7 a.m. Monday. He took infield drills with the likes of Jurickson Profar and former Brewer Prince Fielder. The only regret, Wilson says, was the Rangers' refusal to let him play or take batting practice.

The 25-year-old Super Bowl-winning quarterback says he's not ready to give up his dream of one day playing football and baseball.

"Obviously my focus is football," Wilson said. "I just won a Super Bowl. But I'd never say never. I've always had a goal of playing two sports."

The team even let him keep his practice uniform.
