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