SURPRISE, Ariz. — Russell Wilson ranged to his left, twirled and threw a strike — or first down — to shortstop Elvis Andrus to start a double play. In that moment, he was neither a baseball nor a football player. He was simply a marvelous athlete making the incredible look routine.
Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington looked at his coaches and laughed in amazement. It would not be the last time Wilson left the baseball lifer marveling.
