ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Super Bowl winner Russell Wilson is set for another ceremonial showing with the Texas Rangers.

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback will throw out the first pitch Wednesday night before the finale of a three-game series between the Rangers and the Philadelphia Phillies.

Texas selected Wilson from Colorado in the Triple-A portion of the Rule 5 draft on Dec. 12, a little less than two months before the Seahawks beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 in the Super Bowl.

Wilson spent a day in uniform with the Rangers at spring training in Surprise, Ariz., but didn’t appear in a game against Cleveland on March 3.

An infielder, Wilson hit .229 in two seasons in the low minor leagues in Colorado’s system in 2010-11.
