Johnny Manziel visits spring training

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Johnny Football became Johnny Baseball, at least for a weekend.

Johnny Manziel appeared at Red Sox spring training on Friday night at the team's annual casino charity event to benefit the Red Sox Foundation.

He posed for pictures with a number of players and staff, then showed up the next morning in camp, wearing a Red Sox jersey with the No. 2, the number he wore at Texas A&M, and his name on the back of the jersey.

Manziel has hired LRMR marketing, which represents LeBron James and has a marketing deal with Fenway Sports Management.

LRMR's boss, Maverick Carter, accompanied Manziel to spring training.

Through his representatives, Manziel declined to speak with reporters.
