Brooks & Baseball: The Last Inning
With a .045 batting average (1-for-22), Garth Brooks' baseball dream camp has finally come to an end. Ultimately, Brooks left the San Diego Padres venture without a contract when spring training recently ended. One scout explained that Brooks "couldn't do it all --couldn't hit, couldn't hit with power, couldn't field and couldn't run." Brooks did, however, leave lasting impressions with the pro players -- proving he could rank high in the areas of enthusiasm, dedication and leadership. PLUS! The forthcoming pop-flavored album, Garth Brooks in "The Life of Chris Gains": The Prelude to "The Lamb," was originally slated for a May 4th release, but has now been pushed back as much as two months. According to a Brooks spokesperson, the reason for the delay is due to the need to help "set up" the project. The new album will span the career of a fictional character from the movie Brooks is co-producing. Additionally, there is still a possibility that the entertainer will play the rock star character in the movie.
