Garth Brooks is playing ball with the Pittsburgh Pirates.  

The 57-year-old country music legend will will spend just over a week participating in the team's spring training.

Garth has previously been in the camps of the San Diego Padres (1999), New York Mets (2000) and Kansas City Royals (2004). His workouts start Thursday.

He jokes, "As a celebrity, they haven't cut me yet, so we'll see. You've got to use your advantages, you know. Before you could crowd the plate all you want because nobody wanted to hit you. You haven't got speed. You haven't got fielding. You haven't got hitting. So, use the other thing you've got."

Brooks is briefly 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.

Brooks was a Pirates fan despite growing up in Oklahoma.

The Dixie Chicks’ lead singer Natalie Maines’ divorce from her husband of 17 years is getting nasty!

The singer’s ex, Adrian Pasdar, is accusing her of displaying “aggressive” behavior and “playing games” in court.

Pasdar has made it clear that he is going broke and that Maines is to blame.

The former couple was married for 17 years. They have two children together. Maines filed for divorce in June 2017.

Pasdar stated that Maines “has decided to aggressively litigate this divorce, knowing that Respondent has no access to funds to pay the substantial past and future attorneys fees and costs.”

As a result, Pasdar demanded the court order the lead singer to pay a sum of $6,220 for “unsuccessfully” filing a motion to compel, and another $10,000 “as a deterrence to further bad faith acts” by her and her counsel.

Additionally, Pasdar’s attorneys claimed that the exes’ premarital agreement is still an issue. The attorneys claimed they are unsure of whether or not it is “valid.”

Pasdar blasted his ex-wife and her lawyers for filing its most recent motion one month late. According to Pasdar’s representation, Maines had until November 5, 2018 to file a motion to compel. However, the Dixie Chicks singer filed it on December 3, 2018 without an extension, the document claimed.

Pasdar previously demanded $60,000 a month in spousal support despite that he allegedly earned $400,000 last year.
