Just a day removed from a career-best year of 44 homers, Nelson Cruz ventured a block south of Safeco Field, acting as the honorary “12th Man” before Monday’s prime time game against the Lions.

While Cruz looks like he could suit up as a linebacker, he settled for raising the 12th Man Flag ahead of the big game, whipping the sellout CenturyLink Field crowd into a frenzy in the process.

Cruz also brought along his friend and fellow teammates Robinson Cano and Felix Hernandez, who after a long season, are surely relishing the chance to watch some football.
