Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson will throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the Texas Rangers game against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday in Arlington.

Wilson made an appearance at Rangers spring training in Arizona on March 3, working out with the club, speaking to players and donning a uniform for the Rangers' game with Cleveland.

Wilson, who helped lead the Seahawks to victory in Super Bowl XLVIII in February, was selected by Texas from the Colorado Rockies in the Rule 5 draft in December. An infielder, Wilson played two seasons in the Rockies minor league system in 2010-11.
