Double draftee

Golden Tate played two sports in college.

However unlikely, he’ll have the chance to do so professionally, too.

The Seahawks rookie wideout was selected by the San Francisco Giants with the 1,518th overall pick in the 50th round of today’s Major League Baseball draft. Tate, who was chosen by the Seahawks in the second round (60th overall) of April’s NFL Draft, is a left-handed batter and thrower. He played centerfield for two seasons at Notre Dame, where in 2009, he batted .329 and scored 45 runs in 55 games, in addition to stealing 13 bases in 14 attempts.

Tate was also drafted out of high school by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 42nd round of the 2007 amateur draft.
