The idea of Russell Wilson playing professional baseball is gaining steam.

Back in December, the Texas Rangers officially drafted the Seattle quarterback from Colorado in the Rule 5 Draft.

Topps has even put him on a baseball card.

Now, Rangers' Single-A minor league affiliate Myrtle Beach Pelicans is offering Wilson's choice of charity $10,000 in exchange for playing in one game this summer.

They even put together a nice awkward video pleading their case to bring Wilson to the East Coast.

The video combines Tom Hanks' movie Castaway with a highlight package of Wilson talking about baseball.

Wilson was drafted in 2010 by Colorado. He played second base and in 2011, he played for Class A Asheville where he batted .228 with 15 RBIs and three home runs.
