Royals.MLB.com's Dick Kaegel reports hockey legend Wayne Gretzky joined the Kansas City Royals for their workout before the game Monday, March 24. Gretzky, his wife Janet Jones, and their son Trevor were invited by Royals Hall of Famer George Brett and senior director of team travel Jeff Davenport. Gretzky, Brett and former NFL quarterback Dan Fouts threw out ceremonial first pitches before the game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. "I grew up wishing to be a baseball player," Gretzky said. "I was just sort of out there. I felt like a manager just walking around yelling. You know, I haven't picked up a ball in 15 years. The last time I went out and actually went out and threw and hit, I was with Kirk McCaskill of the Angels back in '93. I'm 47 now, so I was just kind of out there."

The Kansas City Star's Jeffrey Flanagan reports former Kansas City Royals IF George Brett was in Los Angeles, Calif. last week hanging out with actor Kevin Costner and Brett suggested that Costner take a week and train with the Royals next spring. "He was really excited about the possibility. Then he said 'Yeah, but I don't want to be a burden. I don't want to be one of those celebrities who just hangs out with the players and gets in everyone's way,'" said Brett. "But I told him it's not like that. Garth (Brooks) was a welcome addition, and Kevin would be the same. Players really like that addition to the clubhouse. It loosens things up."
