BRADENTON, Fla. - Country music legend Garth Brooks is joining the Pittsburgh Pirates -- for spring training, anyway.
Brooks reported to training camp Monday in Bradenton, Florida, and will work out from Thursday through Feb. 21, Channel 11's news partners at DK Pittsburgh Sports reported.
So it was Garth Brooks who reached out to the Pirates, his childhood favorite team because of Roberto Clemente. This trial is part of Garth’s 20th-year charity initiative for children.

In the past, Brooks has taken part in training camps with the Padres and Mets, according to DK Pittsburgh Sports’ John Perrotto.
