Minor league baseball team to donate $10K if Seattle Seahawks’ Russell Wilson plays game


You’re probably aware that Seattle Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson was drafted by the Texas Rangers, who currently hold his rights.

They’ve asked Wilson to join the team before (just for fun, essentially), but now they competition as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans – a minor league baseball team – is offering to pay $10,000 dollars to charity if Wilson suits up for them for one game.

The team made a pretty humorous video promoting the potential deal, mocking Tom Hanks in the film ‘Castaway’ as he looked for Wilson, his beloved volleyball.

Of course, the Seattle Seahawks quarterback has other things on his mind today as he’ll take on Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII – but might he consider the offer? It’s doubtful the Seahawks would let Wilson play in the game (understandably) but even if the signal caller showed up to the game and played catch, I think the Pelicans would be more than happy with that.

Wilson, before being drafted by the Texas Rangers, also spent time in the Colorado Rockies organization.
