Country music legend Garth Brooks is joining the Pittsburgh Pirates -- for spring training, anyway.
In the past, Brooks has taken part in training camps with the San Diego Padres and New York Mets, according to DK Pittsburgh Sports’ John Perrotto.
Brooks went 1-for-22 with San Diego in 1998 and 1999, and 0-for-17 with four walks in 2002, according to MLB.com. He also had a stint with the Kansas City Royals in 2004 and had two hits.
