Pittsburgh Pirates sign Country legend to week-long contract for spring training

Country superstar Garth Brooks is joining the Pittsburgh Pirates for a week of spring training.
It’s Brooks’ fourth stint with a Major League Baseball club during the pre-season, having previously graced the field with the San Diego Padres, New York Mets, and Kansas City Royals.
Brooks is returning to the sport to mark the 20th anniversary of the Garth Brooks Teammates for Kids Foundation, which has raised more than $100 million for children’s charities. The foundation pairs children with professional athletes.
