Did Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson throw a 98-mph first pitch?

Before the start of last Friday's Seattle Mariners/New York Yankees game, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was give the honor of throwing the first pitch.

Wilson (who played minor league baseball in the Colorado Rockies organization) tossed a strike right down the middle of the plate.

If you were to judge from the scoreboard radar gun, it said that the pitch was delivered at 98 miles-per-hour:

I'm going to gander that Wilson got a bump from the Safeco Field scoreboard peeps but still his pitch was pretty darn impressive.
