Actor/comedian Rob Riggle took some time out of his busy schedule to visit the Kansas City Royals camp on Wednesday.
Riggle is a native of Overland Park, Kansas and is a Royals fan. Riggle got to dress up in a Royals uniform and work out with the team, but admitted to having no baseball skills, and it showed as he failed miserably while trying to catch fly balls. Riggle performed better during batting practice after getting some tips from Hall of Famer George Brett.
Riggle is having a busy month. He supplied the voice of Mr. O'Hare in "Dr. Seuss' The Lorax" and stars in the upcoming "21 Jump Street".

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Cole Hamels? Cole Hamels?!?!
It was barely 8 a.m. inside the Kansas City Royals clubhouse, but designated hitter Billy Butler was on a roll.
Indeed, if the needling of a top prospect by a homegrown veteran is a sign of a team on the rise, then the Royals are well on their way.
Seems left-hander Mike Montgomery, one of the Royals prized young pitchers, once had...
Even though catcher Salvador Perez played in just 39 games for the Royals last season, baseball people and baseball fans quickly began to run out of ways to adequately describe the 21-year-old's talent.
Perez was called a "natural," or a "freak of nature," and quite simply the "best catching prospect the Royals have ever had."
This early in spring training, it’s sort of unusual for the Kansas City Royals to have so many lineup and pitching positions already set with potentially good players. In springs past, the Royals usually had several players fighting for roster spots and many times the players who made the roster were marginal at best.
Even though spring training games just started, a few of the...

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Royals rotation candidates Felipe Paulino and Aaron Crow each pitched two scoreless innings and Kansas City beat the Colorado Rockies 5-0 Thursday.
Rockies starter Drew Pomeranz pitched three scoreless innings despite getting an abrasion on the top of his thumb. Trainers visited the mound to check on Pomeranz with two outs in the second inning after he...
Last season the Kansas City Royals were able to put together arguably one of the best collective performances, both defensively and offensively, by an outfield committee that fans have seen in the organization’s history. Some may say, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”, but the Royals had a different plan.
They needed some help on the pitching staff and that is what they...

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Scott Rolen singled in a run to help a Cincinnati Reds split squad beat the Kansas City Royals 5-1 on Friday.
Rolen's health is a key for Cincinnati after the veteran third baseman played in only 65 games for the Reds last season. He had surgery on his left shoulder in July.
Rolen has five hits in nine at-bats this spring and appears to be mobile in...
The Kansas City Royals started their Cactus League schedule on Sunday with a 6-1 win over their campus mate Texas Rangers. A win as a good way to start the exhibition season, I’m sure I’m not alone in feeling that having any type baseball broadcast over any medium was a cause for celebration. I’m also confident that by the second game on Monday afternoon I was not the only...
