Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson joined the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday morning (6-9 AM Weekdays on 1029/750 The GAME), and among the topics discussed was his effort to bring a Major League Baseball team to Portland.
“It’s an exciting time,” Wilson told DP and the crew. “Portland is such a great city…you think about all the sports in Portland, you think about the basketball team, you think about the soccer team, and you think about what the baseball team could really mean in the Pacific Northwest.”
“I think it would be a huge, huge thing in Portland.”

Back in the spring, Wilson and his wife Ciara were introduced as part-owners/investors in the Portland Diamond Project, the local group spearheading the effort to bring Major League Baseball to Portland.
PDP has since tried to nail down a singular location to purchase and build a ballpark, and after pulling out from one of their offers, have since said they will announce a preferred stadium location by the end of the month.
