National Football League quarterback Wilson strikes out for Yankees

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson suggests drinking water can help with concussions. More

He proceeded to strike out swinging, as Braves left-hander Max Fried sent him down on a 93-mph fastball up and in.

Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson got his first action in a competitive baseball game since 2011 in Friday's Yankees spring training game against the Braves.

Wilson said his main goal was to enjoy the experience and try to impart wisdom gained over his National Football League career to the Yankees.

Turkey: Czech release of former PYD leader is 'support for terror'
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bekir Bozdag said: "The worldwide community is sometimes taking steps in favour of terrorism". Turkey has embarked on an offensive against Kurdish forces in the area of Afrin, close to the Turkish border.

The Yankees acquired Wilson, a star quarterback for the Seattle Seahawks, from the Texas Rangers on February 7. "It could not happen at all", Wilson said, laughing.

Wilson took a monster swing at a first-pitch fastball, fouling it straight back, and then got his knees buckled when Fried followed with a slow, looping curve - something Wilson said he wasn't expecting.

"Every one of these years is another opportunity to grow, and he's been compared to the greatest quarterbacks to ever play in this league, and we always look at them when they're in Year 13 or 14 or 11". We want him to go with the pitch. But Friday Wilson was able to convince team brass to let him get an at-bat, which could have gone better, but also much worse. I went up there in attack mode. "The reality is, I've always been working out, always been training".

Zaza Pachulia To Face No Punishment For Falling On Westbrook
Westbrook is seen on the play attempting to recover a rebound, but gets caught up with Young and Pachulia and falls to the court. Pachulia and Westbrook have also tangled before, the former knocking the Thunder star to the floor in a game last season.

"I wasn't coming here to fool around", Wilson said.

Wilson wanted his Seahawks jersey number 3 for his spring-training cameo with the Yankees this week in Florida but joked it was taken (by Ruth, forever).

Carroll offered his tongue-in-cheek scouting report as a way to deflect a question regarding allowing Wilson to play in a Grapefruit League game with the Yankees, as opposed to just taking ground balls and batting practice with the team. "That's real", Wilson said.

Saleh Muslim: Syrian Kurdish leader arrested in Prague
Turkey on January 20 launched Operation Olive Branch to remove PYD/PKK and Daesh terrorists from Syria's northwestern Afrin region.

The Yankees hope that message sticks around long after he has left for his day job.
