The Pittsburgh Pirates will have some star power joining them in Spring Training this year.  No, they didn’t just sign a big name free agent.  

They instead went the gimmick invite route.

On Monday morning the Pirates announced that Country Music star Garth Brooks will join them this week for Spring Training.  They need someone for the fans to come out to see.

Nothing says Spring Training like Garth Brooks.  Who doesn’t want to watch a guy suck at baseball worse than the guys on the Pirates roster?
