Golden Tate tries his hand at baseball

Golden Tate was a wide receiver in 11 NFL seasons. However, he retired last season and has switched to another sport.

Tate signed with the Port Angeles Lefties, West Coast League's West Coast League. This league is located in the Pacific Northwest and typically includes collegiate players. Tate was a baseball player in high school, and he played at Notre Dame in the early part of his career. He was drafted by two major league teams twice before he entered the NFL in 2010 as a Seahawks second round pick.

Tate stated in a statement that he was extremely grateful to the West Coast League, and the Port Angeles Lefties for allowing him to join their league. Some may not know that I was drafted twice in MLB. My first love was baseball as a child. I am excited to have the chance to play against the best young players in this league. I'm looking forward to having lots of fun and learning more about baseball.

Ex-Titans quarterback Jake Locker, and Bills safety Jordan Poyer were both part of the WCL before they entered the NFL. Tate is the first ex-NFL player to join the circuit. On Tuesday night, he is expected to play in the centerfield.
