The Heisman Trophy winner known as Johnny Football threw out the ceremonial first pitch before Sunday night's game between the Texas Rangers and Los Angeles Angels.

Manziel says he talked to Texas A&M baseball coaches last summer about joining the team. That was before the longtime Rangers fan beat out Jameill Showers for the starting quarterback job as a redshirt freshman with the Aggies along to way to a record-breaking season last fall.

Manziel was a middle infielder in high school and says he misses playing baseball.

Texas A&M had its first 11-win season since 1998. Manziel set an SEC record with 5,116 yards of total offense.
