Russell Wilson absolutely fired his first pitch on Wednesday

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson has become an honorary mascot of sorts for the Rangers after they picked him in December’s Rule 5 draft, and Wilson threw out the first pitch before Wednesday’s Phillies-Rangers game. The pitch was a little inside (to a righty, that is), but Wilson got some decent velocity on it. Hopefully, this is going to end the charade of “Russell Wilson, Texas Rangers motivational tool” (or whatever it is they’re calling him).
